    Is it possible to get the internship even after graduation (2-3 years). I know some companies offer returnship to work but I am wondering if any company accepts interns who are actually graduated two to three years back and could not get opportunity to work.

    It might take longer to find opportunities but it is definitely doable. Keep your hopes realistic. It might take longer to get call backs and you might have to rely on your network to find opportunities. But a few years here and there is no longer a death knell for a career. Most employers understand that women get married, have children, and return to the workforce after a period of time. Prepare well for interviews and simultaneously create a portfolio of past and current projects to present during interviews. It might take time but if you keep at it, it will most likely happen sooner than you expect! Good luck!

    I work and study now. I try to combine it, but it is very difficult. Sometimes I even think of quitting my studies or work. I am very tired lately and I do not have enough time for everything. For example, I need to write a few essays now. Are there any people here who combine study and work?

    You said you are not getting any interview calls. I would like to know how many companies you have applied to for a job?

    Also, try to apply to the latest jobs on indeed. It may take time but you should get the response.

    Also, check your resume it can be the reason for not receiving the call.

    Good to know that you are looking to get back into a job scenario.

    The world is going the "freelancers" way. So, you could start with that.

    Your actions has to take into account not only your qualifications and the requirements of the domain you are an expert in, but also your personality strengths, your innate aptitudes, your interests and passions and your personal value systems and your personal goals and aspirations.

    Speak to a career mentor, get guidance to make a decision that could align all the above and map them to a futuristic career that you could find success and fulfilment at.
