One day, while talking to my brother, I came to know about internships. Before that, I had no idea about what it was and why it was important for one’s career. I decided to go for an internship to gain some experience and pocket money.
After a short telephonic interview, I was hired as a marketing intern. It lasted for 3 months, and I got a fair idea of the corporate life. I decided to explore opportunities in different domains; my journey had just begun.
I was shortlisted for Zomato’s content team as a photo and content moderation intern. Its work culture was pretty amazing. Free food, flexible timings, an amazing office and casual dressing – I enjoyed every bit of it. It lasted for 1.5 months.
I kept searching for internships in different domains as I still wasn’t clear about my real passion. I came to know about internships at Nearbuy through their social media posts. I had a reference and was shortlisted for an HR role.
I’ve been interning at EY since then and enjoying the corporate life. The work here is pretty interesting, and I don’t even need to say anything about the work culture!
In the end, I would like to say only one thing to all the students – don’t stop learning and don’t let a mark-sheet define your career.
