Many universities in China include internships as part of graduation requirements. Students doing an internship fill short-term positions with companies or organizations to gain hands-on work experience and to help develop career-specific skills. An internship is important for two reasons. Firstly, it can give students a better idea of whether their chosen field is right for them. Secondly, an internship can teach students skills which will help them land their ideal job after graduation.

However, many students do not think it is necessary for universities to make internships compulsory. They complain that applying for and doing an internship takes up precious time which would be better spent preparing for postgraduate school entrance examinations. Some students also complain about being treated as free or cheap labor and being assigned to trivial jobs such as answering the telephone, photocopying and buying lunchboxes for the staff which are not related to their field of study. Some students fake (伪造) internship experiences, for example, by using connections to get their Internship Evaluation Form stamped, which makes a mockery of the rule.

Internship, A Necessary Part of Graduation Requirement

         Not every one of us will take part in the postgraduate entrance exams to continue education. The internship can be a wonderful opportunity for those who will work directly after graduation. For one thing, students can acknowledge better whether they fit for the kind of job or not. With the process continuing, they’ll give them an exact orientation and make best choice for acquiring necessary specific skills for their future related job. And as the “hire general rules” bore, one of the most important item is “work experience preferred”. Such form is an appropriate transition to consult with future job.

         We are drowning in knowledge, while starving for practice. Some students just disdain practice but Pursuing so-called academy blindly. Only combining the two in an appropriate way can we have the probability being smooth in labor force. As the saying goes, practice is the sole criterion for testing truth. What we’d learned in school just equip us with knowledge reserve, and it is practice makes eminent sense to convert intangible knowledge into tangible materials and consolidates accordingly. 

         A grasp of mundane affairs is genuine knowledge. internship could feed us what we’d not learned in textbook, expanding our horizon. Meanwhile, making the distance between society and us closer, which can improve our personal ability comprehensively and integrally. This is also the first step facing future work and study. Experts suggest that we should study the career rules with an active and forward mindset while having an internship. Do not expect the enterprise care for you elaborately. The focus of internship is not lying in obtaining skills but in a long period of time studying career rules, the way one gets along with people, the industry and the way to communicate of it, which focusing on career culture and morality. In addition, if the career culture is in place for college students, consequently, the career adaption will be cut down and promoted quickly. According to survey results, the average monthly wage for those who have internship experience are higher than those who don’t.

         “internship have no relation to our major field” is skimble-skamble complaints. Success in any area is not accomplished in an action. Taking sensitive entertainment circle as an example, whoever has the outstanding achievements is hard at the starting process. Before they are famous, what they did are far less than answering the telephone and photocopying such t rival things. Why? You may doubt. Attention! Life is like a box of chocolate, you’ll never know what you are going to eat. Everything real is rational. We’d better make it clear that whatever we did and what we are doing are not in vain. Mostly, however, it can not be paid off immediately and genuinely in our expected way. We hold no extra designed purpose the moment we absorb varieties of knowledge blended from history, culture, geography and etc, which is just like drinking water without obvious benefits to our body but it do being necessary. Our knowledge we had acquired in class packing us as a tree; we need to add soil constantly for ourselves through widely reading other subjects seemingly not related to our own field anew and anew, in order to stand our ground firmly when the rainstorm comes one day.

         There is a prime example defending the above thesis. A girl who passed the entrance test for MA of PKU taking one month. Before deciding to take part in the postgraduate entrance exam, she is busy preparing the materials going abroad but disinterested in finance gradually. And then she gave her one year time to have an interval. In the year she attempted different area and asking herself: what is the most important to me? How to achieve a balance between ideal life and the reality. The moment she faced to herself directly, realizing that she still held interest in art theory forming from childhood. Lastly, she made her final decision to pursue her dream continually. The point is perfectly demonstrated in her entrance exam, there is a art criticism theory she had never heard of it. She, nevertheless, organized the answer combing her daily understanding from the scope of knowledge she covered. After that, she searches for the theory only to find that the explanation are nearly same with her own understanding. No pains, no gains. Even the t rival things like serving drinks can be a stepping-stone for your future career one day unconsciously.

         Internship is not just short period work experience but a part of life. Wise man acquire from it, complaints just for the idiot. Just being an observant and conscientious person, experiencing what God guides for you."
