Your Internship Story was as much fun for the participants and winners as it was for Team Internshala — see for yourself!
It was wonderful being able to put into words a month’s experience and hard work that I went through for the first time ! For me, it was my first internship, and what more, penning it down earned me a cute t-shirt and a good certificate as well! ;) It really provides a good boost when you enjoy something like writing and composition, and there is good receipt of your work and effort at the other end :)
It was a thrilling experience!

Internshala has made a great effort in taking this initiative for the young students, by encouraging them to share their internship experiences with their peers as well as other students all over, helping the inexperienced ones in making their choices and in understanding the challenges and positive aspects of internships in their field as well as in other fields. It has also established a networking platform for future students in finding right opportunities for internships.

I am not a regular writer, nor a blogger, but when I came across this competition I thought of participating in it, and believe me within no time I wrote down my experience without any hesitation. It was all because of the push this competition gave me that I feel like writing more and more about my different experiences now.
– Lovenish Atal, IMT Ghaziabad
I had an amazing experience venting out my ideas through this platform. It also helps others to know what an intern in a specified company or otherwise leads to or results in. I would like to thank Internshala for portraying such an idea and implementing it.
– Rupika Srivastava, IIT Roorkee
I am very happy for having been participated in such an innovative competition. I thank the crew who are behind this. It was a fabulous experience where people of many areas would collaborate their thoughts and memories to cherish. I would request you people to create more such events.
–Sri Ram Kartik, Aditya Engineering College
It was a great experience to be a part of Your Internship Story contest at Internshala!
– Tarun Goel, IIT Kanpur
Enjoyed very much. And learned from others. So many creative people at one place.
– Harsh Bansal, MIET
To me, an internship would be only as good as how great one feels inside the organization. I would not have known about the best internships being offered without this contest. Reading a few internships stories gave me pleasant surprises!
– Rajesh Dharmarajan, K J Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research
I thank and wish success to Internshala for having such a unique concept and platform.
– Vibhor Jajoo, IIT BHU
The contest was innovative and I loved the idea. Definitely a win-win! Cheers to the Internshala team.
– Akash Deep Badhawan, IIT Ropar
A novel and enriching experience which enabled me to not only share the ups and downs of my own internship, but also gave me a glimpse into the experiences of a zillion others from the country. Way to go Internshala.
– Surojit Chakraborty, IIT Kharagpur
It was a good experience writing the story and getting the ‘Winner of the day’ award. People praised me for the wonderful story and congratulated me for having it published. Thanks.
– Mayank Savla, IIM Ranchi
The most surprising aspect was that my boss read it, and had a good laugh. An excellent concept, and a great way to engage people and build interest among the student community.
– Akhilesh Gannavarapu, JNTU
It was a nice initiative to provide a common platform for interns all over to share their experiences and learn from others.
– Pooja Manchanda, NITIE
It was a nice platform to share your internship experience.
– Awani Bhatt, NM College
This is a wonderful initiative from Internshala to encourage management graduates to share their internship experiences. By reading stories of hundreds of our peers, we are able to obtain different insights and perspectives w.r.t. the different areas in management. It also helps us get a peek into how things work in different organizations and helps us understand the opportunities different sectors have to offer us once we enter the corporate world. Kudos to Internshala for this wonderful platform! :)
– Saranyan R., KJ Somaiya
It was a nice experience and the judgement was really really fine. I liked the blogs by the winners.
– Prerna, IIT Roorkee
The experience opened a page of the history of my life. It made me think of beautiful memories that won’t come again in my life. The concept was really great and I am looking forward for more good topics in future.
Thanks a lot!
– Priyam Malhotra, Banasthali University
I had a wonderful time thinking about my experiences in working with a not-for-profit foundation, which was fun! It helped me document my experiences so that I could read them at a later time and have a pleasant laugh!
– Netha, Government Medical School Kozhikode
Loved the experience and hope the frequency of these contests increases down the line!
– Pradyut Hande, NMIMS
The experience was really great and earlier though I was a bit skeptical that my internship will be appreciated or not as it was not with a big MNC but winning this contest makes me feel more proud about choosing the internship I chose (I had actually ditched an internship with a big chemical company to pursue this internship with IIM).
– Tarun Gangwar, IIT Bombay
The overall experience was unmatchable. I wrote my internship story with utmost care and tried to cover every point that was needed to be mentioned. During this contest, I got to know the internship experiences of many students that were very unique.
– Shashank Tiwari, PDPM IIITDM Jabalpur
It is great because people get to know what the internship world looks like. They get motivated and also learn about the things which are important in one’s internship.
– Harsh, NIT Kurukshetra
YIS is one of the best ever contests I’ve participated in! It did give me a platform to let my creative juices flow and has helped me hone my writing and marketing skills! Thanks a ton, Internshala for being so awesome! Keep it up :)
– Sowmya Swaminathan, SDNB Vaishnav College for Women Chennai
It helped improve our analytical thinking and spending time on the contests was never wasting time; rather, it was a great learning experience.
Best of luck and thank you to all of the Team Internshala.
– Uttam Mittal, IIT Delhi
An innovative and refreshing method to bring together all the interns and have a common platform to share experiences and also bring in a small bit of competition to improve participation. Kudos to Internshala!
– Murtuza Shergadwala, IIT Guwahati
My experience with the contest is good, as I read many internship stories from Internshala in this contest and some are really very good ones. I also got to know the other experience in internship of participants that might not happened with me. The overall experience was good, good going Internshala!
– Harshit, Ajay Kumar Garg Engineering College
It’s a very good contest and it helped us to find our talent in drafting or reporting our experiences. It made us get to know how people of our age group felt in those situations, their stories helped us to improve our presentation skills too.
– Aditya Micheal, JNTUCEH
I never thought that my internship experience would be ever read by 2300 people across the globe. Internshala made it possible. I thank it from core of my heart not for acknowledging me as a winner but for helping me establish as a writer among my friends which I always wanted to be. It was a memorable experience worth lifetime. Hail Team Internshala. You guys are really doing a commendable job. Glories of success awaiting ahead :) Cheers!
– Abhishek Kumar, KIIT
Four points to describe my Internshala experience:
- Unique concept
- Excellent participants
- Good management of the entire competition
- I love the T shirt :-)
– Gaurav Kaila, Manipal Institute of Technology
Writing about my internship experience was a good experience since I was taken down the memory lane and I got to re-experience the awesomeness of my internship all over again. Thank you Internshala for this experience!
– Shruti Tripathi, IIT Ropar
YIS is a new and unique concept of discussing n sharing your experiences with rest of the world.
– Akash Govil, Maharaja Surajmal Institute of Technology
The first time I got to know about this program, I really got excited. I wrote my story without editing it a bit. So it was a great concept that Internshala has brought and on the other hand, I got to know others stories too, which I really liked. So hats off to Internshala for this program :)
– Moumita Bhowmik, NIT Agartala
It was really good to have such good platform to share my internship experiences.
– Anamika Patel, IIT Indore
Internshala gave me a platform to voice my opinion about my internship. The experience I had was beyond words, but the fingers would always tingle to put them down on paper. Then Internshala happened, and the whole concept behind this organization encouraged me to share my experience with other fellow interns from different spheres and backgrounds. It was truly a learning experience and in some way, it helped me become a better man. Thank you Internshala!
– Aaquib Raza Khan, Jamia Millia Islamia
Great concept and excellent entries. I could imagine myself going through the experiences when reading the articles. Thank you Internshala for the contest. Expecting a lot more in times to come.
– Deboprotim Borah, Tezpur University
It is not everyday that you come across online contests that are authentic. However, Internshala – Your Internship Story competition was not only authentic but very well organised and encouraging. I had never thought there could be an organization that gave so much of importance to the way we utilized time during summer vacations. Very encouraging!
P.S: The T-shirt and the certificate were damn good ! :D
– Tanvi Gupta, JUET Guna
An excellent effort. It should be one of the most innovative things of all times. Juniors actually get to know of so many experiences that they never could have and this actually makes it easier for them to choose between the areas they want to gain their experience in in the upcoming summers/winters. It helped me last year and I am pretty sure it’ll help students even this year. All the best to Internshala and all the followers of Internshala who are going to be greatly benefited by it.
– Aditya Gupta, IIT Kanpur
The contest shifts our focus on what we want and we are dreaming and visualizing the things for having them one day. It’s one kind of a positive thought that motivate us to work smartly. Thank you.
– Girish Patro, Centurion University Paralakhemundi
Novel idea to spread experience…warns you beforehand of where not to go for interns and what to necessarily do. Gives a platform where such an important aspect can be discussed. Kudos to Internshala Team!
– Prachi, IIST
My experience was nostalgic because while filling up the form I remembered all the good time I spent with the organization during internship. Thanks to you for giving me this opportunity and reviving my wonderful memories.
– Mohit Harjai, Guru Teg Bahadur Institute of Technology
I loved the experience, looking forward to more!
– Pranav Panchagni, VIT Pune
It was good to reflect back and write about the experience. Reading entries of other people took me into a different world altogether. Overall, it was a good learning experience participating in this contest. Thanks :)
– Manoj Kumar Chaudhary, TISS
It was a good initiative taken by you. I actually heard it for the first time that some is uploading stories of training and internship at such a scale across the country.
– Sachin Hembram, NIT Rourkela
It was the first such contest of its kind in my life. I didn’t quite know my writing skills were good enough until you selected it, followed by getting positive responses from so many people. It was a complete honour to be acknowledged at such an overwhelming scale. Thank you Internshala. Keep up the good work ! :)
– Gunjan, IIT Roorkee
It was a great walk down the memory lane. Writing all this actually made me realise what I actually experienced there and the small things that could have been left un-attended and realised had I not put it into words. Thank you so much.
– Akshay Dongarwar, VNIT Nagpur
I really enjoyed the whole experience of my association with Internshala.
It’s a very vibrant and interactive forum. There’s a dual service provided by Internshala: giving the interns an opportunity to share their internship experiences and spreading awareness among readers regarding various internships available within and outside India. Being a student of behavioural economics, I personally appreciate your “incentive” based approach. For every action, you have a small incentive which motivates the participants to improve their performance. Great work!
– Divya Malhotra, Christ University Bangalore
Brilliant contest which was never organised before. Opportunity to know about different students and how they found their way through difficult situations during their internship.
– Kalpit Mehta, Manipal Institute of Technology
Never thought that I could share my experience such a way. Thank you Internshala.
– Souvik Mazumdar, Haldia Institute of Technology
Though I was not able to win but it was encouraging to read someone else’s story and learning from it. I recalled all the good and bad experiences to write that one story and that was really special. Thanks for wonderful opportunity that ignited me to write my experience.
– Pooja Mehrish, Delhi University
An excellent experience, very rarely would ‘writing’ about an internship be well appreciated. It is an interesting way for any first-timer to understand what to and what not to expect in an internship.
– Swati Shetty, JBIMS
It was a nice experience. I read the stories of the participants and see that how their internship was. All the best for next year’s competitors and may this type of competition goes on and on!
– Romil Srivastava, Jodhpur Engineering & Institute Of Technology
The contest overall provides a nice platform for students to share their internship experience and at the same time it also gives other students to read internship experiences and take inspiration.
– Ankur Arora, Sastra University
It was excellent. The concept is new and inspiring, especially when it comes to learning.
– Amit Shresth, Dayalbagh Educational Institute
It gave an opportunity to reflect back on what I had done during those 2 months and how it helped me. It’s wonderful that Internshala is organizing such contests!
– Gitanjali Maria, LIBA Chennai
Great and it was nice to see the effort made to deliver the present across the border. It felt good and was a great opportunity to connect :) Perhaps in the future, this (website and internship) could function as a medium and bridge between the two nations.
– Sara, IBA
It was good to participate in it and read others’ stories too. Good job Internshala Team! :)
– Divish Gupta, IIT Delhi
Taking part in this contest helped me write about my experiences of my internship, something I wouldn’t have done otherwise. What I’ve written, now, serves to me less as something I had written as a contest entry, and more as a keepsakes, for without it, I probably would’ve forgotten many of these memories over time.
– Aditi Annapurna, LSR
First of all, I was glad to put in my internship experience, which could re-enrich me by recalling the wonderful memories. As with any contest, there was a lot of excitement involved. I would say the most wonderful and refreshing part was reading through the internship experiences of winners.
– Teena, SJCE Mysore
It was great participating in a wide forum of contestants who share their experience on a similar context.
– Gokulnath R., IIM Indore
I didn’t win a prize but when I was writing my experience it felt really great. I could relive each and every moment of my training again. Thanks Internshala.
– Shruti Choudhary, NIT Kurukshetra
It was an interesting contest. Hats off to Internshala. I had fun, got to read about internship experiences of students across the country, and bagged a prize in the process.
– Chaitali Ratnaparkhi, JNTUHCEH
Overall a really good experience. It was fun reading the experiences of others and their internships stories.
– Shreyas N Kutty, Sathyabama University
This competition gives me immense pleasure. I was excited that I was short listed in this contest — simply superb!
– Yashodhar Yadav, St. Anne’s College of Engineering and Technology
Thanks to the contest and the attractive prizes it offers, I had the drive to pen down my account of an internship abroad, something I was procrastinating with!
– Sharmili Adhikari, NIT Durgapur
This was a great platform for me to showcase my skills and tell the world what meaningful things I have done in my life. Such competitions is what makes us better writers, thinkers et al. It was a wonderful experience.
– Yojet Sharma, Ramnarain Ruia College
A great opportunity to share our experiences. These internship stories give us an idea about about internships in different fields as well.
