Internship Memories

Happiness to me in those days was getting my Internship letter from one of the private sector company. I am talking about the times when only few companies would visit the college and select only few candidates for the purpose of internship. There was less chance to get train and sharpen your skills with the big organizations as it was due to our college was not the tier 1 college. Most of the companies would go to the prestigious colleges with big names and only three or four companies would visit the campus. I was lucky to clear the interview and get selected to train in the metro city Delhi which is also known as capital of India.

It was a beginning of new journey as I had lived with my parents all together all those years and it was first time that I got the chance to visit different place and get accustomed to new environment. Internship made me grow from college boy to young men with independent charge. I was no more into spoon feeding in those three months and it was a really hard life. I got to realize that how difficult to live without family and friends. I had to do all work on my own and then come back to rented flat and do all the household chores including washing my clothes and cooking food. It was a kind of project which helped me to improve my personality and English language. It made me improve my communication skills and knowledge about market and working on different tools and techniques. It made me understand about using technology and computer for data capture and analysing it for future use. I felt that internship and studying in college is completely different ball game and we must use the things learned in college to use it in the market but at the right time. My key aspects of learning in those three months of training are getting to know that how much co-ordination among different departments is very important task. I was given the work to study the organizational structure of various departments and give ideas to improve their structure and functioning. I was also in regular contact with the college professor and teachers and would discuss contents of Project to get the solution to my problems and get their guidance.

I found the internship very useful for me and recommend every student to take such opportunity as a fresher or experienced. It is a perfect platform to learn and gain knowledge.

Golden Days of Internship

College days were the best part of my student life and it was such a great life where their was not much pressure and tensions.It was all about being cool and enjoying life without any big responsibility.My whole life took a complete turn once the internship started and I was a complete different personality after those few months of training which still helps to cope up with different situations in office.I was finding it difficult in the starting of my training but slowly and steadily I learnt to be flexible and adaptable to the working conditions.Then I was also able to develop my ability to work in team and take independent charge which is an important for working in any industry today.

I was also part of promotions and selling activity at the main sales counter in company stall at the exhibition counter and displaying of the products.This was really exciting as I got to interact with people directly and understand aspects of marketing and selling skills.During this period different kind of task were assigned by heads of various departments which gave knowledge about the various aspects of functioning and understanding different people role and their responsibilities in the whole assignment.The project ended with a certificate from the company and a casio watch as a memonto for me.This whole period was like a test run for me before making the cut and prepare myself for the road ahead.Further I also told the company about key things which can help in reducing cost and this can be done by starting centralization system of the whole network and standardisation of their product cost.The best part of my work was taking the role of  area mapping by visiting different geographical areas and comparing different brands and our company products in terms of availability and consumer preference.I was also given the major big task to help my boss in knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the company and making the research report.This kind of activity was key liking and my favorite part of internship.

My hardwork and efforts to complete internship project was appreciated by the whole company and my school professor too.The most amazing thing for me was getting a preplacement letter from the company which helped in the future during the college placement.I was no more worried about getting a job like many other candidates and this made a big difference in my approach for the interview during the placement time.
