May 18th, 2015 – June 15th, 2015

First Day

The office was quite organised and well maintained and I thought that it was a good start. Actually, I would end up sitting for at least 2-3 hours before knowing what to do.

The first day formalities included filling up standardised general information procurement form, I was given my biometric card and a notepad.

Main tasks

The tasks which the interns were required to do were research based, and were awarded in a random manner.

An intern is mainly given a task on which he / she is required to search upon, make it in word or PowerPoint form, form a case note of the same and then mail it to the concerned associate.


Work environment was good . The only thing was one has to find their own way in this organisation. Only a few will keep an eye or will actually take an effort to teach you anything.

All the associates think that the interns know everything. Moreover, the tasks are time bound and if you do not comply to them they will scold you.

Best things

The best thing about the internship was that the working environment is very casual wherein you are expected to keep yourself occupied as very few people bother to take an effort to teach you anything.

Bad things

All the interns are given tasks on the subject they do not know and in my experience failure to do anything would result in one being humiliated.

I remember one particular task which was given to my fellow intern: he was required to submit his report by afternoon and that report supposedly was so necessary that he was not allowed to go and have his lunch and was made to stay back till 8:30 pm.

I also faced a lot of problems in getting the internship certificate.


No stipend.
