Practice Practice and practice

You need to practice for the interview. You need to practice for the Data Structure and Algorithm and You need to practice for the rejection as well. Starting with the first two, try to give at least 3–4 mock interviews before your final interview. Interviews are important as that is the place where your skills will be tested and verified. Have a good hold on your speaking skills. Don’t overthink about your rejection or tough questions.

Build Your Network

Getting a personal recommendation is like a cherry on the cake, so make sure to reach out to friends, family, colleagues, classmates, professors, and alumni to see if they know anyone hiring. Another great strategy is to look up the companies you’re interested in and reach out to employees there for an informational interview. You never know what opportunities it might lead to.


Hope for the best. You will get many rejections sometimes you will feel low but this is how it goes, all your rejections will have a 0 sum once you get your internship. At the end of the day, only your position and company will matter. Thank You !!
