Wrong timing machi

Recently i learnt my lesson on how important it is to get opportunities at the right time.My college announced an internship program for the Final year students, who are the most stressed out lot in college , with the worries about a future lying ahead of them. Also they have to cope with the fact that a few interviews could be make or break for them.The much hyped aptitude tests of Software firms is something students are freaked-out about because they have spent the last 3 years of their lives enjoying college life.Right now our profiles have nothing that set us apart from the crowd.Most of us don't even have a project to mention on our resumes.Althoug ,if expertise in Poker and Rummy count perhaps , we stand a terrific chance! After wasting all the time we had during the first 3 years our college is coming up with an Internship programme with impossible conditions to meet.It requires us to take a bus to college for 21 days on the trot during our summer holidays and work for like the whole day when we have those tests to prepare for.Had the management been smart they'd have arranged for this when we were in our second year or so.Now we're left with a blank resume and bitterness of having to let go of the opportunity.Its all about timing machi
