How did you apply for the internship?
I had to send an email to [email protected] with my CV and the CRY registration form. I got a call for Anindita Mukherjee ma’am (manager of CRY East) directly for a short telephonic interview.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
I was issued an intern id card on my first day. All interns could dress up in casual clothes. They also issued a laptop so that there is no need to carry your own.
I was taken to meet Anindita ma’am who allotted me to the Public Outreach campaign and a Public Action Group.
My main tasks were to meet the PR head of popular malls in Kolkata so as to get permission to promote a CRY event in their mall.
As a part of a Public Action Group (groups of volunteers who interacted with underprivileged children), I had to complete child profiling of all the children being taught by CRY in a specific locality.
The work environment was relaxed. All the people in the office are very friendly.
Office timing is from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm but you can leave early if you finish your tasks for the day.
There was a lot of exposure for students who got first-hand experience in interacting with authorities and getting the work done.
Building social skills is very important for new law students.
There was no bad thing as such.
Details about accommodation and commute
I live in Kolkata so I did not have to look for accommodation.
I was lucky enough to intern during a time when an event for volunteers was organised so all interns and volunteers got a lunch treat from CRY.
Apart from that, this internship definitely helped me gain confidence in interacting with various kinds of people and gave me an insight into a professional work-life balance.
