Daily Winner for: – 12th August 2011
Name of the intern: – Apurv Dhingra
Institute: – SIBM Bangalore
Organization interned with: – Reserve Bank of India
I got shortlisted for an intern interview at ….wait for it … “RESERVE BANK OF INDIA”(RBI). I was so excited at the shortlist itself. I went for the interview and had 5 top GMs including Regional Director staring like vultures at me. There was one sweet lady (as always) there. For the next 20 minutes I was ripped apart on almost all areas of Finance. Fortunately I had read a lot on the “hot” topics of Basel II and Risk Management on blogs and newspapers and it was one of the project topics. I answered all the questions confidently and finally the sweet lady asks an easy one! I was certain that I was through and when the results came I had topped the interviews.
I had the most amazing 3 months of my life. I did my intern in.. wait for it again.. “Department of Banking Supervision” of RBI Bangalore. I got to interact with top bankers and senior people as well. The sumptuous lunch for – you won’t believe it – Rs 5 is the most value for money ever possible on planet EARTH!!!
Also I got a lot of valuable guidance from my guides. I learnt lessons in documentation as my report was ripped apart 5 times. Also my final presentation was attended by RD himself. I got the chance to meet Mr Subbarao himself during one of his visits (He took out 10 min exclusively for the trainees).
And yes it changed my life. I did my project in Basel II itself which later helped me get an Intern and further my first job in my current organization ING VYYSA BANK.
