Add-on courses? Voice-over internships in India on the rise.


Greetings,
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?
Leave a comment on the blog!
Cheers,
Stephanie

  1. Quite interesting, I have student friends who are interested in this internship.
    Is there travelling involved? Please let me know.
    Cheers

  2. Hi Charleston,
    Thank you for your comment. The internships are part of add-on courses offered by some colleges related to the Delhi University.
    There are likely similar opportunities available in your area. I would recommend that your friends contact their academic counsellors for more information.
    Best wishes,
    Stephanie

  3. Hi!
    Glad to read this interesting article… I’m not studying, but working for myself.
    Can you help me and tell me how I can get about to doing voice overs as a freelancer?
    Thanks & cheers!

  4. Hi Shibani and Megha,
    Thank you for your comments.
    The first thing you should do to find voice over work is to make sure that you have a solid voice over demo that you can market yourself with.
    This demo should be in MP3 format saved at 128 kbps or higher. CD quality is best.
    The next step is getting your voice out there on the web.
