How did you Apply?
I applied via mail. I sent my CV along with the cover letter at email@example.com. An interview followed.
I received a reply a few days before the internship was to commence.
I applied in the Month of February for a month-long internship with the centre. I later on received a call for an interview followed by a confirmation. There are certain formalities that need to be completed prior to the commencement of internship. Generally, the internship is conducted offline giving you access to the library and NLU-D campus, however, due to the pandemic it was an online internship so accommodation was not an issue.
First Day Formalities, Impression
I was allotted a mentor, who I was supposed to report at the start of the Internship programme. I was allotted tasks and a spreadsheet to update about the same. If I had any doubts, I could easily reach out to my mentor for help (When asked, it’s never denied).
She explained everything to me in a precise manner- what has to be done? How it has to be done? Where can I find the resources? Etc. If I faced difficulty in completing the task, my mentor either helped me resolve it or allotted me a different task. As it’s an online internship, the work hours are flexible.
At the end of the day, the tasks were to be submitted via mail and the logbook was to be filed to keep a track of work done by you.
The tasks allotted to me were majorly concerned with Research on criminology and victimology. In my initial days, I worked on criminology in India- post 2000. Later on, I was asked to prepare drafts on Rehabilitation of victims of commercial sexual exploitation, Forgiveness in the criminal justice system etc. Sometimes, small tasks are allotted on an urgent basis.
Once you submit your work, the mentors provide you with feedback and encourage you to improve your work until you reach a level of perfection.
Guidance. Improvement. Encouragement.
They guide you and encourage you to improve your work. If you are willing to learn about criminology and victimology while improving your Research skills, this would be a good starting point for you. They would also provide you with constructive criticism when you fail to produce quality work. But, that would help you grow. All in all, it’s a good place to learn and grow.
It was an online internship so you would miss out the Delhi campus [But, safety is important:)]. The experience differs on the basis of work provided. You work on ongoing projects, so you might have different feelings towards the work allotted. For me, sometimes it became tiresome writing research drafts in such short time limits.
At times, I had to stay up late to finish my research. Other than that, there’s nothing bad.
I wish you all the luck!!!!!
At the end, you would be submitting your logbook on the basis of which you would be provided with an internship certificate.
