Even before I joined my MBA course, this was an event that I looked forward to with a lot of enthusiasm. ‘My first corporate experience’ – ‘The MBA Summer Internship’. The gyaan that I often received from my peers and seniors pictured the internship as a ‘make or break’ moment, since I was a fresher. Read more…

I could not hold back my emotions when I got my Internship confirmation. To work with one of the largest Pharmaceutical companies in the Financial Capital of the world would be a dream come true for any graduate. Just thinking about the fact that I would be spending the next six months in New York made me excited to the core. As time passed, I packed my bags and starting getting nervous as I never had been out on my own before. It was my first job and that too in a place totally alien to me.

Studying Renewable Energy Engineering and Management at TERI University after working with SAIL was by choice and against all the opposition from the society. Ask me how tough it is to justify that quitting a PSU job for M.Tech is best suited for me. But it was because of my passion for doing something of my choice different from the regular trend, that I joined TERI. Read more…

Organization interned with: - Ganga Ram College
I used to travel 40 minutes in metro and 20 minutes walk to reach G.Ram Hospital. I interned under the clinical psychologist. On my first day I wore the proud jacket and entered the hospital premises. My first day as an intern was also my first day to travel alone in metro. Oh, how much I loved that hustle. I was mesmerized by the feeling of individuality. I, a shy, introvert & homely girl, was actually out, alone and making sense of routes despite my bad cognitive maps.

Getting an internship for a small grade college student who does not have contacts in the companies or with the professors is very difficult. The same happened with me. I applied to all the IITs for Summer Research Intern but was rejected everywhere even though I have done work in my field (Robotics) before. I was quite disappointed because nobody was evaluating my knowledge and what I had done. Just because of the college name and with no recommendations I was not able to get any internship. Then once I thought why only IITs or big brand companies? The soul purpose of the internship is to learn and I should go to the place where I can learn more. The best way I found is to go to the start up companies there you can get the proper guidance as well as the work. So I started looking at the start up companies which is working in Robotics.

Organization interned with: - Schlumberger limited
Schlumberger has a rigorous selection procedure (which becomes blatant when you realize that they selected four students out of almost all departments that applied from IIT D). They short listed resumes, conducted group discussions and finally had personal interviews that ran past midnight. It was early in the morning when we were told that we had made it!.

Nothing in the world could be rocket science, not even Investment Banking!
In B-schools, Finance has always been the most coveted industry to land jobs in, especially by the top brains on campus; it is hence, a misconception that it is extremely arduous to tame. Having had an engineering background and 3.5 years of experience in the IT space and hence no exposure to the Financial world, I too opined the same. Read more…

My internship @ The Hindu was a luxury experience!!
Although I did not get any stipend, the events which I covered as a reporter were enough to compensate. From Page3 parties to book launches, I covered it all. Pick and drop facilities were provided by the event management companies.

“First of all the experience was more than an internship for me. I am a Biomedical Science student, so working for an NGO was not at all a part of my curriculum. I feel for social ventures so I decided that I will utilize my holidays in doing something meaningful and selfless. I was searching on internet and found about this NGO. The main reason to choose this NGO was the proximity to my home. Read more…
