It is my belief that whatever your field of work might be, an exposure or internship with an environmental organization is of the utmost importance. It teaches you the environmental aspect of your discipline. So I, an International Relations major in my 3rd year of study decided to intern with an NGO in Pune called the Centre for Environment Education (CEE) along with a friend, Chehek. Read more…

Crossing a thousand miles from my home, when I reached Pune for my internship, the first thing that was on my mind was, “Is it actually worth coming here leaving my family and friends for an internship which may or may not turn out to be a disaster for my career?” That was the first time I was stepping into the professional world, unknown till then, and a simple mistake or decision could ruin my first experience and portfolio.

Second day into the office, I was excited and tensed. “Will I get a chance to meet him?”, “What should I speak?” were the questions that probed me throughout the night before. And finally when I met him, I was dumbstruck. I even forgot to wish him back. Yes, I met Adam Gilchrist during our first press conference of the season.

The Oxford dictionary defines an ‘intern’ as a student or trainee who works, sometimes without pay, in order to gain work experience or satisfy requirements for a qualification. My definition of an ‘intern’ would be a person who remains in an organization for a stipulated period of time, regardless of work, largely with a feeling of being unwanted, Read more…

True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.

Noticing my reclusive situation, Read more…

‘Turkish Odyssey’ – My first day at college and I spot this gigantic poster on the food court wall. Flaunting every pixel in every corner of its canvas and with every letter of “IAESTE” getting imprinted into my mind, I slowly and gradually soaked in the meaning of this unknown organization. Well, it was quite self-explanatory as the photo of almost every flag that accompanied the IAESTE logo complemented the purpose of this organization – Merit based internships abroad with a hefty stipend.

They say a relevant internship serves as a priceless stepping stone to one’s future career, irrespective of one’s chosen domain. In March 2010, I arrived in the city of Bengaluru for a three month internship with Pepsico India Private Limited with that very ideal enshrined in my mind. The sweltering heat, annoying traffic, dusty roads and alien layout of the city failed to dampen my excitement (but it did amplify some of my trepidation!) Read more…

When I started looking for internships, I had my mind set on getting into a publishing house or a newspaper (wanted to flex my journalistic muscles, you see).

It was the time when my batch mates were busy attending interviews for summer internships. But for me, the first short-list came after five disappointing days after the process had begun.
