Send an email to [email protected] with a cover letter and a resume. Apply well in advance cause they take a long time to scrutinize and offer you an internship only when such a need arises in a project.
It is located in Indiranagar, near 100 feet road. They have a beautiful 4 floors office with a cafeteria in the open terrace. The interior and the exteriors of the office is very well decorated.
I applied for an Internship when I was in my 4th year of BA LLB. Working at amnesty was no doubt a lifetime experience. I was working under the Pretrial Detention Project with 3 other interns.
The nature of job required me to send out, track and analyse the data received through RTI applications and research on other factual and legal issues related to under trial prisoners across all central and district jails.
Interns are treated with a lot of respect and are often involved in most of the project meetings which will motivate you to work hard. In my opinion, they believe in quality of work and efficiency over the number of hours which an intern puts in.
Working in Amnesty gives you a close look towards the reality and helps you decide about the future you are thinking of pursuing.
Each and every person working in amnesty is very friendly and warm. You can always approach your manager for any problems. They are very co-operative and adjusting.
I worked under Project manager- Arijit Sen. Cant thank him enough for his encouragement and support.
Unlike any other monotonous work place, Amnesty and its HR team always attempts to organize team building activities such as celebrating birthdays of employees, food festival, movie screenings and other field trips which gives you a wide platform to socialize and know each other better.
Amnesty gives you a holistic development. It was a sheer joy being a part of amnesty. Thanks a lot to everyone who made it memorable.
