One hot summer and two internships in India – Shivani Mukerji

Katie Idle

About our business, Study and Go Abroad is the 'go to' site for Canadians looking to study abroad, travel, intern or volunteer. We organize fairs twice a year in various cities in Canada, and I'd recommend getting down to one of them to check out all the exciting options. As for me, I'm a business woman and a travel junkie! I have always had a passion for travel and for experiencing new cultures. Brought up in England, I traveled Europe in my teens and early 20s. I have lived and worked on 3 continents; Europe, Africa and North America. I have traveled extensively worldwide both for work and for fun - and still can't believe how much of the world there is still to see!

    Just wondering what your advice is for people who don’t have the same good fortune as you to be born into a family with *connections*?

  4. Hey A.M, that’s a very good question (And I like your screen name too)!

    For people who don’t have strong family connections, I can suggest two ways to enter the Indian workfoce. First, you could start working for international companies with branches in India, and ask to be relocated. Giant multinationals that started in India include Tata Motors, Infosys and Ranbaxy, and being the upcoming economic powerhouse that India is, a lot of other companies are expanding into the country all the time.

    Another way in is to get in touch with volunteer organizations, go to India and make contacts while you’re already there!

    Hope that helps!
