February 2018: While the educational topography of India keeps on evolving to the tunes of time, the scope of internship and its subsequent transition into success walks on a precarious ground. This is precisely the reason why Aniket Singh, a product designer and life coach, urges students to opt for internship programs outside India through his eponymous book, Intern Abroad This Summer: Intern Abroad, Expand Possibilities. Mr. Singh is an alumnus of IIT Madras and currently works for Apple in California.
Already hailed as a crackling success, this edifice of knowledge and practical experience has been heralded by critics and educators alike. The book, also considered as a reflection into the author’s personal experience, unfolds with how a life changing conversation with his senior during his engineering days about an internship, had provided Mr. Singh with an momentum to strive for his dream internship.
He goes on to share with us a step by step approach towards obtaining a dream job at a foreign country, along with his fun travel stories in a lighter mood. This book is a must read for young minds who aim to fly high in their professional career battling the odds of securing average grades and/or degrees from non-premiere institutes.

A foreign internship is the best way to land in availing a dream job, while creating a smashing resume. It talks about creating career advancing connections while travelling the world.
