Your Internship Story

Your Internship Story 2013

Your Internship Story is Internshala’s flagship online competition for students to share their internship experiences. The objective of the contest is to build a knowledge base of internship experiences that future interns can refer to make their internship hunt easier. Also, through this contest we want to showcase how important internships really are for students and how they add tremendous value to both the student and the organization – thus hoping to promote Internshala’s core vision of bringing a culture of meaningful internships in India.

One of the most popular student contests in India (both in terms of quality and number of entries), Your Internship Story contest is organized every year in July-August period.

The ‘official’ participation (for prizes) in the contest for 2013 edition is now closed but we accept the entries on rolling basis round the year. And, we may still surprise you with a prize or two if your story gets accepted for publication on Internshala. Go ahead, share your story with the world, and may the glory be yours!
