Krishan Neelendra (2010, Law) has featured in an article in the Financial Times about the value of student internships.

Krishan “had an impressive CV” but still believed he needed something more, and so he took an internship at Lantai Partners, a Chinese law firm in Beijing.

“I had my eye on a training contract,” he told the FT. “Even if you have good academics and extracurricular activities it’s not enough to distinguish yourself.”

The internship was in intellectual property. When he later attended job interviews, he discovered that potential employers were very interested to hear of his experience as an intern.

The article is available on the FT website, subject to the newspaper’s paywall rules.
