Add-on courses? Voice-over internships in India on the rise.
The Hindustan Times had an interesting article about what their trendy teens are up to this summer.
Instead of working ‘summer’ jobs, many college students are pursuing internships in career fields, including voice-overs as an initiative by Delhi University colleges to help students gain hands on experience called add-on courses.
“Internships are part of our add-on courses like journalism. Students of other short-term courses like advertising and banking also visit advertising agencies and banks to see people in action.” said Meera Ramchandran, principal, Gargi College.
“The students may or may not get stipend for these internships but they do get experience in these organisations,” she said. “Most of our students do summer jobs such as voice-overs and editing.”
Well, there you have it!
Do you know of other ‘add-on’ educational summer internship programs for broadcast and voice-overs like the opportunities mentioned in India?
Have you participated in a voice-over internship or do you coordinate one?
