I am currently in my third year. There are seminars and sessions conducted by the college to guide us with our future. Many internships have been provided by the college. But since it's just a BA degree, the scope for jobs and salary figures is comparatively low. I am going to pursue my Masters in English Literature, that will help me grow as a writer and eventually help me find a decent job.

No, I don't have any internships as of now. Biotech companies hire students from our college. I have no idea about the salary figures. Bright students of our college have been placed in hi-tech biotech companies or are carrying out research in eminent institutions.
