Travails of getting an internship

Every summer, ever since i joined college, it was not just the heat, the power cuts and the humidity that came to haunt me, along with it came the travails of getting an internship. Its not mandatory for me to take it up but being in the media stream, the real lessons are learnt in the field and not in the class room. So year after year, every may we take our bonafide certificate and try to get someone to accomodate us in for a month's intersnhip. Invariably we are told "sorry! its all filled, why dont you try the next year"... fortunately sometimes, my profs help us out through their contacts and put us on to some project or research work. This year around, the heat is boring down, power-cuts even more frquent, humididty taking all the freshness out of my soul and also back again - the travails of getting an internship... i have the same good old bonafide certificate, which says that i am"........" studying fourth year electronic media is a student of anna university, only that the year is now 2006...
