Your Internship Story 2011

India’s FIRST and BIGGEST such contest, Internshala invited students all over India to share their internship experiences with the world. We were stumped by the overwhelming response that we received and the quality of write ups (as you may see below). Thank you everyone for making this a grand success and look forward to staying in touch. We’d also like to thank IBM (Corporate Sponsor), Shaastra 2011 (Innovation Partner) & (Online Knowledge Partner) for their support and encouragement. The prize money for the contest was sponsored by IBM.

The list of winners with link to their stories is given below. Hope you enjoy reading India’s finest internship experiences of the year 2011!
