A must-read for every student who is willing to go the extra mile in pursuit of his/her dream opportunity.
Having learned from Nukul first hand during my job hunt, I have done and executed most of the things mentioned in this book. It is well structured, practical, easy to follow, and most importantly, effective. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking either for an internship, a job, or to understand how to break down a problem and tackle it.
‘The Internship Hunt’ has given me a blueprint of the job application process. Starting the 2 year MBA journey next fall, I feel confident to land a good internship. For a fact, I have networked with a few potential employers by using the techniques mentioned in the book. I would highly recommend this book to all college students looking to get a job or an internship.
“The Internship Hunt – A Full-Time Job” is an extremely powerful and inspiring story of an ambitious student’s humility, composure and patience, longing to make his mark against all odds. Nukul has beautifully penned down his story to showcase what one can do to achieve his/her goals. It is a must-read for recent graduates, or students seeking Masters/PhD degrees. It highlights the little extra one needs to consistently do in pursuit of a dream opportunity. This book encourages you to put in enough effort to transition from mediocrity to excellence. It is all about going the extra mile and leaving no room for regret.
An amazing book with applicable suggestions. The book is very succinct and a quick read. Books on job search available out there don’t tell you about the “how aspect” of the hunt. However, this book shows how to go about it with legit examples. It is a must-read for not only an MBA student but also a non-MBA struggler.
This book helps with an end to end study of what goes into securing an internship or a job, and is written in a highly detailed, yet organised manner. From handy tips to enhance your resume to detailed methods of how to approach companies at various levels including quick links to all job-related platforms for easy reference, this book covers everything a student/job-seeker would need to do to ensure they’ve done what it takes to get in. The author gives you a dekko of his internship journey by sharing visuals of his email exchanges, LinkedIn conversations etc., making it so much easier to grasp what’s being communicated through the book.
The book provided me with some much-needed insight and guidance, on how to break-down the seemingly complicated process of looking for an internship (job in my case), into small, achievable steps. It helped me structure my search, decide a POA and made me realize the importance of being disciplined and consistent. Also, tips on communicating with people, supported by screenshots of the author’s Linkedin conversations, proved extra useful considering this was an area I always struggled with as an introvert. All in all, if you are willing to go that extra mile for that dream job or internship, this book will certainly prove to be a great guide.
The book is well articulated and to the point. It is a quick read, which is a very big plus point. The chapters flow smoothly in a planned manner. The book is honest. The author’s experience gives insight into what goes on behind the scenes when looking for an internship/ job. The work and effort that one needs to put in is not only for a few weeks before your degree ends, but also a continuous process. It has been both described well and delivered as a perspective to customize plans, aiding to fulfill one’s dreams.
I absolutely loved the book. I’m simply astounded by the amount of work Nukul has put into it. His persistence, hustle and ‘shamelessness’ has left me speechless. What I really liked about the book was how direct and succinct everything was. No flowery theorising – it was all to the point. Also loved how structured Nukul’s approach was. There is clear evidence of a substantial amount of thought put into it. Excellent work.
The book elucidates all the key components needed to land an internship. As a student, I must say that it serves as a great handbook, building on specific areas that need work. It’s an interesting read. Highly recommended.
