According to the recent India Skills Report, 2019, 84% of Indian students prefer opting for internship training. Now, while that lone statistic sounds encouraging, the same report showcases the larger picture which states that only 37% of institutes and organizations provide internship opportunities for students.
ISR states that only 47% of the population’s workforce in India is employable, portraying the gap and the underlying issue.
The reasons are plenty, but most of them circle one major missing phase and that is an internship. It is an internship that bridges the gap between graduates and their dream jobs. From effective training and exposure to the real business world to even personal development, internships not only help build an enticing resume but also ease the transition into a full-time job.
If you are pursuing graduation and seeking an internship, where do you look for vacancies, other than individually contacting and getting in touch with institutes and organisations for an internship program?
This is where EarnYoung comes into the picture. It is a start-up established by the students of Jagran Lakecity University that aims to facilitate and execute professional and productive internships.
By arranging paid internships to students across all industrial sectors, this platform ooks to connect students and companies and vice versa, with the main goal of looking at providing the right opportunity to the right candidate.

This is all down to the impactful practice-based pedagogy of the university which aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry.
Additionally, JLU has a 25-lakh fund to help and assist start-ups. This has encouraged students to delve into starting their own businesses. Another good example like Earn Young is ‘Taal Mell’, a sustainable-products store, collectively launched by 2 JLU alumni, to rescue and reclaim Earth by producing environment-friendly products at a modest rate.
The products range from copper bottles to eco-friendly toiletries to aromatic night candles, and the business garnered a lot of appreciation and attention this year and in February 2021 they were honoured as Swachh Bharat Ambassadors for their efforts towards eradicating plastic. These are the success stories stemming from a university that has looked to cultivate creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship among students.
