I always believed in the saying that if you do what you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life! I’ve always been passionate about sports and fitness, and so I knew from the start that I wanted to do an internship in Decathlon. 


Their tagline “Sports for all, all for sports” should tell you why I made that decision. 

We were asked to submit our CVs for the CV shortlisting round. The next round was a telephonic interview with the CR manager. I was asked to introduce myself followed by questions on my favorite game and my academics. 

After a few days, he called me and asked me to attend the DRD – Decathlon Recruitment Drive. In DRD, I was asked to be in front of the store at 6:30 in the morning for attending the interview.

I cleared that round and it was time for the final panel interview. They asked if they were investing in a new store in Gujarat, what factors would I consider using for convincing them as the store manager.

 I walked into the interview room wearing sports tee and shorts, and came out bagging a summer internship offer! Pretty cool, right! My joy knew bounds!
