Duration of internship and timings
April 6, 2015 to April 30, 2015
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
It is Hindustan Times. So yes the office was huge. It was in fact intimidating since I was the only intern there.
The legal department is quite small and they had difficulty in allotting a place for me to sit. Though in the end I was given a small conference room and I used to be there all by myself and do the work.
I actually liked the privacy they gave to the interns. First day I just finished all the required formalities and got no work.
Main tasks were research work. And I based all my research work on media and advertising laws since these are the main areas which the legal department of HT looks into.
They have litigation team also. I did few drafting projects for them.
Work environment and people
Work environment was awesome. All the lawyers in the legal department plus people from other department were very friendly and approachable. I had an awesome time interning there.
FREE COFFEE THROUGHOUT THE DAY. Yes we could have coffee whenever we wanted. This was the best part.
Free and super fast WiFi and yes there was no restriction on the usage of YouTube or Facebook or any other website for that matter.
No food joints near the office or any place to hang out since the office was located in the industrial area and had only office buildings.
Good experience of corporate internship. First hand experience of how corporate world is and how it all works.
