It’s hard for undergraduates to get paid internships," says 21-year-old Pallavi Agarwal. As an undergraduate studying commerce at Delhi’s Shri Ram College of Commerce, she interned with a bank and a start-up; she didn’t get paid at either. The internships taught her a lot and were good talking points in job interviews. Today, having landed a job at global consulting firm AT Kearney, she is glad she focused on choosing the right places to intern rather than waiting for paid internships to come by.
