What kinds of internships should freshman B. Tech students seek out? More importantly, how do such internships make your resume more appealing? The kinds of internships that you apply for will depend on your area of expertise. If you are most interested in working as a cybersecurity consultant, pursuing internships in this field is the best option and likely to provide the most benefit to your resume.
How exactly does an internship add value to a resume? You should showcase your professional experience, of course, but an internship—even if it is unpaid—shows you have dedicated additional time and effort to learning a skill and gaining experience. Showcasing the
additional experience of an internship adds value by demonstrating this to potential employers.

Your best bet is to apply for internships that match the kind of role you think you might want to have upon graduating. The idea is to learn early whether the career you have in mind now is something you can really see yourself doing for the next 30 or 40 years.
If the internship convinces you that you have found your ideal career, you can then focus your remaining three years on the most relevant coursework. If, however, the experience makes you reconsider what you really want, then at least you aren't wasting your undergraduate education on something that won’t work in the long run. Yet an internship experience can also expose you to careers you’ve weren’t aware of, and put you on a more suitable career path.
In any case, a freshman internship can help you make the most of the next three years of your career preparation. And that always looks good on a new graduate's resume.
