As a college student, one is required to get their hands on work culture so as to experience the textual knowledge in person. As of this date, I’ve done six internships and I’m still waiting for my bachelor’s degree (I hope the university results are announced real soon). I would love to share top five, according to me, frequently asked internship interview questions.
