India’s largest internships and training platform, Internshala hosted a unique one-day internship program on 15th February 2019. During this program, 11 students from across India were selected out of 3000+ applicants and got an opportunity to live Internshala for a day. The motive behind hosting this offbeat internship program was to inspire and encourage students to become a part of something disruptive and explore their career options by giving them a sense of the startup culture and introducing them to various functions that make an organization.
The interns were selected based on their application, a telephonic interview, and the level of enthusiasm they showed for the internship. During the one-day internship, the selected interns got to understand about the functioning of various teams of the organisation and worked with the operations team in which they learned how internships are authenticated and approved to be posted on the platform. Each intern was assigned a mentor to guide them throughout the day.
The internship proved to be a successful event for the interns as they had a fun-filled learning experience wherein they got to interact and conjure up ideas with members from different teams throughout the day. Towards the end of the day, they were rewarded for their hard work with a certificate and Internshala goodies.
On organizing this one-day internship, Shadab Alam, the head of corporate relations at Internshala said, “We invited students to come and experience Internshala through this 1-Day Internship and received an overwhelming number of applications from across the country. The selected interns got an opportunity to understand how the start-up functions and an opportunity to explore prospective career options.”
“We were taught everything about how internships get posted on the platform and how they handle a huge number of companies waiting to post their internships. It also gave me an insight into the amount of hard work and time it takes to deliver an internship to the students. The work culture at Internshala was great & the team members were not restricted to work at a particular desk or cubicle. ” said, Apoorva Agnihotri, one of the one-day interns.
