  2. 2. Selected Ideas  Compulsory Internships for students/Working and studying: Internships, though of a short duration is one of the best ways to get the corporate feel. While it exposes you to the way a single company works, multiple internships can help students get a feel of different work cultures and atmospheres. Hence colleges should give equivalent weightage to internships as they do for course work and reward students who take up more number of quality internships related to their study and do well in their roles as interns. This will also help bring the company and the college also in close collaboration.  Mentorship programmes and ice-breaking sessions in Company: This will help increase the comfort levels of the new joiners and also ensure them they have someone whom they can approach when in trouble. The Mentor should also be evaluated on a 360 degree feedback from the mentee.  Encourage students to participate in competitions organized by companies: This is helpful in two ways: 1) Bright students will come within the radar of the companies and therefore have brighter career prospects and employment opportunities 2) It will help students interact with industry professionals who will be judges and the organizers. This will also help the students in networking with professionals
