Duration of Internship:
How you applied?
An internship opportunity opened at Lawctopus, which redirected to a Google form. On the basis of the form, applicants are selected for a final interview.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impressions:
The first impression of the government office is unlike that seen anywhere else. The ambience itself suggests a positive work environment and makes one want to work.
There were no hurdles or formalities to beginning work, simply get in the office and get to the job assigned. The office is professional and posed no issues apart from occasional space issues.
The work primarily involves handling grievances and legal drafting thereof of notices, summons and advisories after thorough research on the subject.
The whole experience was extremely enriching, to the point that I felt regret leaving the place. The team is very friendly and yet professional in their attitude. The work culture is engaging. The work itself gives a sense of satisfaction, helping the society at large.
You learn a new thing every single day, outside or inside the realms of work.
No bad things whatsoever.
The office is a few meters away from the Kashmere Gate metro station
Chilling out, Lessons Learnt:
The office itself was a chill place, you would get McDonald’s every now or then, or possibly a thali.
Otherwise, McDonald’s and Domino’s are at a walking distance, apart from the multitude of outlets at the metro station.
Overall, the interning never felt like a ‘task’ but rather an interest or a hobby. Every single day was enriching.
