The Internshala Student Partner Programme was one of the best choices of my life. There is nothing comparable to the real world experience gained! The only thing I would like to see in future is that this becomes a stream of confidence building and networking. I enjoyed the opportunity thoroughly. I was surprised at how easily I was able to find something in my field of interest and it definitely developed my knowledge and carved out some fine cuts to my personality.

Once while checking my emails, I got an email from Internshala regarding suggested internships. I logged into Internshala and there was a banner regarding ISP. I filled up the form just for the experience and fun. After few days, I received a message regarding the ISP program that I was shortlisted for the next round and then for the interview which was an automated voice-based test. Then the big day arrived – I was so surprised and happy the day I was appointed as an ISP. I was sure that I would utilise this opportunity in the best possible way. I was told about my role and tasks. First and foremost, I created a network using social media, college mates and my website users, Facebook, Twitter and many more ways. Soon many of my friends, teachers, and college mates came to know about Internshala and me as an ISP. This was just the beginning. While working, I realized that running the program alone won’t be fruitful; I needed a team!

I started promoting products and services of Internshala. In the beginning, I was not confident if this would really work but I believed that sincere efforts are never wasted. The rewards for each task and challenges during ISP program were full of surprises. I was amazed by the ‘zabardast’ response from students, and many students were interested in VTC and
internships. In return, I received a lot more from Internshala and the remarkable plus point to my CV is not just the ISP certificate but also the fact that I secured 3rd Position during ISP 4!

Special thanks to the whole Internshala team and especially Megha Ma’am for the support and faith she showed in me, to Shekhar Sir for giving me a chance to use my Corel Draw Skills for Internshala and to Sarvesh Sir for organising Webinar based on “How to StartUp?”! It helped me a lot along with other webinars.

Thanks once again for providing me the VTC Courses which helped me in improving programming concepts and building Apps which are now available on Play Store and the incentives due to which I could start my own websites like “ (Technology, News and Entertainment based Blog with DIY and IoT Tutorials) as well as (Shopping Cashback & Coupon Website) ” and buy some interesting books to read.

Last but not the least – Cheers to Internshala – Cheers to ISP Program!! The craze for all the upcoming ISP Programs will be always there!
