Internshala- making my internship matter

Nitisha, a 4th year computer science student at KEC Bhubaneswar, recently completed her 1st month at Internshala as Editorial intern. In this article she talks about her journey so far and how she is learning to push boundaries of word possible every day. Read on…

From being interviewed to receiving the call letter from Internshala, every moment has been precious. It’s been a month now and I can’t remember a second when I haven’t felt as a part of the team. The virtual interaction session with the team members was uniquely helpful and exciting. It made me feel very comfortable. Working with a start up is challenging, but Internshala makes it all worthwhile. Under the guidance of a very inspiring and dedicated mentor, my first month has been quite a journey.

With all the work and deadlines it seemed difficult at first. But when you have a team where your mentor cares more about your academics rather than the work assigned, where you have friends who help and guide you through every silly problem; what more could one ask for? Had the team members not been so supportive, I wouldn’t have made it through. It was a different experience altogether. The work did push my buttons, but only towards excellence. It was also amazing to see so many victories in one month. I felt proud to be associated with Internshala.

The feeling of taking up responsibilities, executing them successfully and being appreciated for it is just awesome. The making of the Internshala Newsletter with all its complications was indeed a turning point. I got to learn so many new things, but the most important one was- ‘Never say I can’t do it’. One may have to work on diverse areas, so always be prepared for anything and everything. For help, the team is always there. In this one month I’ve discovered a part of myself that I was unaware of until now.

It would be unfair not to mention the happy moments of receiving your first paycheck and other perks. Your first hard earned money is indeed special and I got that from Internshala. I am also the proud owner of an Internshala T-shirt in which I look super cool. Internshala does make an internship matter. Looking forward to more excitement and learning in the coming months.


If you think you have it in you what it takes to be part of such a super achiever and fun loving (ahem, ahem!) team, drop a line to with a short write up on why you should be working at Internshala and what are the top 3 things that you would change/implement at Internshala to take it to next level. We are always looking for people for our Editorial, Technology, Design, Video teams.

    Excellent Nitisha, I am also computer science student. I have some questions if you are comfortable then I will be very glad you answered them.
    As I read you are a computer science student and internship in editorial department??
    I mean to be frank doesn’t it have a negative impact on our resume at the time of job when the interviewing person saw an internship in editorial field.
    Also I would like to know your views in it.

    Thank you

    Thanks Ritesh. :) Being a computer science student doesn’t mean you have to intern from a technical background only. Writing is one of my interests and my idea is to pursue it professionally to improve myself. And no worries, this will never have a negative impact on your resume. Moreover this will impress the recruiters that you are a versatile(sort of) person and give you an edge over others. Also there are so many things you learn while you intern at a start-up that will certainly help you professionally almost in any field. And if you are still doubtful, you needn’t mention it in your resume at all. Experiencing and learning is the most important part of any internship.
