First impression and formalities:

I still remember the nervousness I had on the first day of my internship at UnitedLex but it did not last for long as the people around greeted me well and made me feel comfortable.

The HR introduced me to the team that I was supposed to work with and the rest of the employees on the floor. Post my detailed intercation with the HR, I got to know every bit about my internship program.

As they all say “first impression is the last impression”, so to support this and to prove this – UnitedLex designed the four week long training program in a way that the seriousness gets associated from the very first day.

On the basis of availability of the Knowledge Managers, the internship period was divided as below:-

Work environment and people:

There was no work pressure and the work environment was quite relaxed. The people were friendly and always ready to give advice.

Best things:

The company offers great learning and growth opportunities. The hours were pretty comfortable with pick and drop facility for interns. What appealed me the most during my stay at UnitedLex was the direct involvement of the vertical heads and the guidance provided by them.

They took out time from their busy schedules to interact with us which was quite enthralling as I was able to learn directly from the people behind such a big organization.

Feedback on connect with COO India: First of all, it was really a great experience for me to interact with him; the session was quite extensive and sir had spent about 50 minutes with me and other interns.

He really did cover a lot of issues with all of us in terms of providing us with a bigger picture of the LPO industry in general and UnitedLex and our careers in the LPO sector in particular.

The discussion on domain related knowledge was also pretty interesting when he shared the concept of the ‘patent squatter’ companies with us and their mode of operation in brief.

Also his making the point about the BPO industry having contributed immensely towards increasing the purchasing power of the young Indian population, especially in the FMCG sector was enlightening.

Also, he made the point very clear that in today’s changing legal industry scenario, young law graduates can actually build a good career starting and remaining in the LPO sector. All in all it was very fruitful and interesting session we had!

Feedback on connect with HR Head India: The Connect with Suruchi was very fruitful.

It was a candid discussion on various topics related to the LPO industry, UnitedLex, law school and our careers. I think we were on the same wavelength in discussing the different aspects of our experiences in all the 3 verticals.

It was insightful as well as she mentioned to us some of the hurdles which had been faced in ULx in the initial stages and how they have been ironed out and also the road ahead.

It was a two way communication in which we also discussed the involvement of LPOs with law schools and a few ways in which it can be carried forward in a more planned manner.

Feedback on learning during Contract Solutions: It was a truly great experience of spending most of the time at Contract Solutions under your able guidance.

As I have told to various other people, the CS Week was simply by far the best time spent among all the 3 verticals at UnitedLex Gurgaon, both due to the content of the vertical and largely due to your dynamic personality and experience.

The entire CS Week was replete with substantive and practical knowledge sharing and yet it did not feel even for one moment that it is becoming even a tad monotonous or strenuous! That was simply a great effort from your part.

You made us feel welcomed and at home all the time and never did we feel that we were an extra added responsibility on you. It just seems that it’s a part of who you are – always affable and full of friendly guidance.

You certainly made my internship at UnitedLex a cherish- able one, it could not have been the same without you!

Stipend:

Interns were paid a stipend of 6,000.00 per month and were also provided transport facility for pick and drop from home to office.

Biggest lessons:

The UnitedLex Internship was probably one of the best internships I have ever done as it led me to understand the various verticals that the company works in.

I feel it is one of the most unique training program developed by the company as the it does not restrict the intern in understanding just one vertical but it distributes the time of the intern in such a manner which enables us to concentrate and understand each and every vertical and then make an informed decision of choosing the vertical of the utmost interest in order to build one’s career.

Outcome:

This internship experience at UnitedLex has been one of the most fruitful experiences of my life.

I was fortunate enough to first crack the interview post completion of internship program and then receive a pre-placement offer.
