“I was always intrigued by how a website functions and wanted to learn how to develop one but had no prior knowledge or experience in web development. I did some research and enrolled in a Web Development online training. It was a 6-week long online training which was divided into 4 modules – HTML & CSS, Bootstrap, MySQL, and PHP. The training started with frontend technologies wherein I learned to develop a webpage using HTML tags and to design and style it using CSS. The first and second modules introduced me to the working of various tags, the styling of pages, and the concept of responsiveness. The next two modules taught me the nuts and bolts of the backend. I learned different storage techniques, types of databases, MySQL queries, DML commands, and various types of keys and their uses. Lastly, I learned server-side scripting language and MySQLi. Most of the queries I had during this training were solved via Q/A forum but if I ever had a doubt, the teaching assistant was there to help. The quizzes and coding challenges made this journey quite interesting and the solutions to all the assignments were helpful. In those 6 weeks, I learned much more than I had expected.

Just after the training completed, I began my search for relevant internships with an eagerness to work on live projects. I applied to an internship along with the link to the e-commerce website I had built as a part of the training in my application and within a week or so, I received an email stating that I had been shortlisted. Going forward with the selection procedure, they gave me a task wherein I had to design a homepage for their website with a header followed by a photo carousel, services, and other details. I put everything I had learned during the training to use and submitted my entry. I was shortlisted for the telephonic interview! In the interview, the recruiter asked me about web development and I answered with ease, after which I was hired as a front-end developer. My responsibilities include developing various blogs and websites for the organisation and testing them for speed and performance. I also work on their SEO plans, meta tags, and WordPress plugins. “

This is the story of Sanya Singh, a student of Northern India Engineering College and how an online training helped her get an internship. Despite not having completed formal education in the field of web development, the training equipped Sanya in getting employed.

To help you understand how an online training can make the difference, let us first discuss what is online training? Unlike the conventional learning in the classrooms, online training makes the content available for students digitally. Students can learn online, anywhere and anytime. Instead of physical copies of books, e-learning uses visual content and gamification.

While hiring, employers seek relevant set of skills which can easily be gained through learning. The test and assignments along the duration of the training will provide you with knowledge and experience that will instil confidence in you.

Internshala Trainings, the trainings arm of Internshala, has launched its first ever language training – French language training. The beginner level training will help the learners to read, write, and converse in French. The major highlight of the training is the ‘in-built speech recognition engine’ which helps the learners practise their pronunciation. In this, the learners would be able to see a French word or phrase, its phonetic, and its audio pronunciation on the screen. After going through these, the learners will be able to record themselves speaking the word/phrase via the microphone and check if their pronunciation is correct or not.

The 6-weeks long training features scenario-based learning where interactions between characters in different day-to-day settings would help learners understand the language in a better manner. The training covers 15 basic topics of French in 4 different modules which include an introduction to French language, learning how to introduce oneself and other people, learning to conduct basic conversations in outdoor settings like while dining or shopping, and learning to make other day-to-day conversations like talking about renting a place, getting a job, or planning an outing in French. 

Additionally, to make learning fun and simpler, the training is packed with engaging quizzes and multiple exercises such as fill in the blanks, arrange in order, MCQs, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, and match the following. 

The training is created by a French language expert, Rachna Sachdev, who has been learning and practising French for over 10 years. She finds the French culture fascinating and emphasises that French is an interesting language to explore and opens up various career opportunities for the Indian students in both India as well as abroad.

On the launch of the French training, the Founder and CEO of Internshala, Sarvesh Agrawal said, “From the past 5 years, we are thriving to skill Indian students for the professional world through Internshala Trainings. All the trainings that we offer are beginner-level trainings to provide students with an opportunity to explore and learn new skills without having any previous knowledge of the subject. So far, our trainings taught most sought-after skills in engineering and management fields, and with the launch of French language training, we are stepping into new waters to bring out exciting trainings which are both fun to learn and add to students’ career journey in newer domains.”
