The year 2014 ended with a dream about landing an internship at internshala.com and the year 2015 begun with the realization that my dream has come true. Yes, I am sitting at Internshala office and writing this post as a Business Apprentice intern. An engineer interning as a business apprentice? It might sound strange to you folks, but for me it is finally good work! I was itching to get out of those circuit diagrams and signal processing books (You got it right, I am an Electronics engineer)!
Internshala is a small office with 15-16 odd members but the energy and ambitions are sky-high. They are definitely here to make a difference in Indian internship market. The selection procedure saw me getting in touch with the CEO of Internshala. Its not that you get a call from the CEO of a company everyday! Perhaps one of the benefits of working at a start up is that you directly get in contact with decision makers (hopefully some day I will be one of those decision makers!!)
Many people enter their internships/jobs with a lot of expectations but I have come here with just one- to learn as much as I can and re-define my limits. Learning new things at a start up, from giving presentations to engaging with clients to marketing, I look forward to have an unforgettable and an exciting internship experience.
