Career Must

5.0 16/09/2010
What I would highlight: I came to know about Career Must from a friend of mine who recommended trying them out, because I had already spent a whole month searching for an internship opportunity without success. After contacting them, within days I received 4 offerings and also some general advice about my CV and Letter of Motivation. After another week I had found just the right thing for me, and I have to say that asking Career Must for help was really a good idea, because it saved me a lot of time and they got me exactly the internship I was looking for.

Course programme

This 4-week program (with a potential 2-week to 6-month extension) centered around New Delhi, India, immerses the participants in the diverse cultures of the amazing Indian Subcontinent. Next to a program of seminars and language trainings from Monday to Fridays, there are skills trainings and field trips as well as overnight excursions on the weekends and a possible extension of two weeks to six months to pursue your own individual project.

The program offers you the chance to take subjects that are outside your normal degree, broaden your educational experience, and accelerate your academic and professional career. A cornerstone philosophy of the program is that only by living in India and experiencing it personally, one is truly able to grasp the meaning of cultural diversity in India.

This highly interdisciplinary program will allow international participants to experience first-hand the myriad cultures that constitute the diverse country that is India. It provides participants with manifold opportunities to view India through various lenses and explore its diverse landscapes, varied foods, unparalleled architectural monuments, World Heritage Sites, and colorful festivals.

You will meet and interact with people from all walks of life, from the international businessman to the dedicated grassroots volunteer, from the atheistic scientist to the Muslim mullah, from cosmopolitan socialites to street children. You will be able to learn from all of their experiences and within no time you will find yourself successfully navigating the local cultural environment.
