Name of Organisation, Location city, Team Strength
I applied directly for the post of Senior Research Associate, as I was already having experience of being a research associate with another website.
Duration of internship and timings
6 months from 5th September, 2014 to 5th February, 2015.
First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure
First impression was quite good. The founder is really enthusiastic about the work. I used to communicate with him directly through e-mails. He clearly explained me what to do and how to do and I was free to contact him anytime whenever I had queries or any doubts.
My main task was to assign tasks to research associates, proof read their submissions, give my feedback to them and then finally submitting it to the Founder of LexQuest for publication on the website.
Other tasks were to make sure research associate meet their deadlines and I also supervised preparing the modules for an Online Course.
Work environment and people
Work environment was pretty chilled out as I was working on a senior position. Mukul is quite sweet when you talk to him but he is very serious when it comes to work.
Other Research Associates were also good as they were law students in different years from different law school and they appreciated every feedback and modified their articles accordingly.
1. Varied knowledge. Research Associates were supposed to write articles on current affairs which they submitted to me and it is an interesting work, if you like reading.
2. Working on a senior post in itself is a very good opportunity as well as gives you a good feel. 🙂
3. A non-NLU student giving feedback to NLU students. Some of the research associates at that time were from different NLUs.
4. Flexible timings and work from home (you cannot miss the deadlines).
None. I wish I could continue it.
Remuneration was only for preparing course modules and for other work, I got some goodies.
Always meet deadlines and work hard if you want to achieve something.
