What is Internship vs Apprenticeship?
What is the difference between a teenager and an adult? Okay this may not be the perfect simile but you would know the difference between an Under 19 cricketer and a National team player? Of course you know it..
Pretty similar on the lines, is the difference between Interns/Apprentices and full time employees! But then this article tells you the difference between Interns and Apprentices, there you go:
Basically internships are jobs offered by companies for a shorter duration of 1 month or 6 months at maximum. Apprenticeship programmes are way different. They are not only longer in duration but have to be attended simultaneously with ongoing studies at concerned universities.
The company pays the tuition fees of the university on behalf of the employee during an apprenticeship programme whereas it is not true in case of internships.
After completion of internship, the employee can start with another one, or can be offered a full time job by the concerned employer/company, depending upon his/her performance. But in the case of apprenticeship programmes, the students directly land jobs after completion of the programme.
The pay scale of internships are generally low as compared to apprenticeship, where one gets high wages with full time employment after completion.
And it's absolutely true that getting offers of apprenticeship programmes are a lot competitive and difficult when compared to internships.
