Dear all,

I joined an MNC back in July 2011 as an Intern for the HR team. During the interviews, the company said that the period of internship will be for 3 months and depending on my performance I shall be either retained or shall be released. They offered me a stipend of 12k per month.But even till now nothing has happened as such. No confirmation from their end. Itís been 7 months and I am still an intern in the company. I am looking out for another job as well. But most of the openings are in the consultancy firms, for which I am reluctant to join. I am not finding openings with any companies and hence forced to be in the same company. I am in a dilemma as to what shall be the further steps to be taken. I cannot leave the company as there is lot of other commitments. My performance is kind of good in this period of 6- 7months.

So can you guys please suggest me as to what should be my next step? Wait till their confirmation? What effect does this period of internship of 7 onths have on my career? Is it counted as experience?

Please line up all what you are delivering , with learning and capability to deal a new job. You have been employed with a salary , even if it was declared as internship. This is an employment. Moreover, an intern is as good as a management trainee or an entry level role, post working for a certain duration, within the organization.
As you mentioned you have reasons to continue till you find a new job, your decision is perfect. Please do not take up any role which will offer you neither growth nor opportunity. So , my suggestion is a reinforcement of your beliefs .
Wish you all the best !
