How did you apply for the internship?

I applied through LinkedIn by sending my CV, subsequently there was a telephonic interview which was intimated to me via their email address – 

First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression

Since this was an online internship we could not see the infrastructure and all.

We had a meet on Day 1 in which all the tasks that we were going to do was discussed in brief.

We were divided into two groups of 6-6 students.

We all shared our background and qualifications in order to help each other during this internship.

Main Tasks

We worked in four different departments, viz. – social work, HR, finance and marketing.

Task 1

a) Approaching our nearby street vendors (4-5) and making them aware of the importance of hygiene and how this will have a positive impact on their business.

b) Guiding them with some marketing ideas for better sale of their product e.g. T-shirt branding, online food supply idea.

Maintaining quality product, quality packing, usage of ecofriendly cups/glasses/plates instead of plastic.

Task 2 

a) Planting 5 trees in a forest/open ground/road divider/park and posting photos on our social media handle with the plants.

Further, introduction, ecological values and also creating awareness among the people regarding the importance of trees and encouraging them to go green by planting more and more plants.

Task 3

a) Inviting applicants for internships, selecting their CV and scheduling an online interview with the applicants.

b) Making a social media strategy for UMEED and helping them in connecting with more people via different social media platforms.

Task 4

Yet to complete!

Work Environment

The work environment was really good.

We were being guided by one mentor who helped us throughout this internship.

Whenever we felt any kind of confusion we contacted our mentor and they guided us towards the solution.

Good Things

Some good things that I can think of:

1. Work was flexible, we got one week time for the completion of one task, meaning we completed the task according to our own schedule.

2. At the completion of a fun task we needed to submit a document describing how we had done that task in a detailed manner along with some photos and videos that we could capture.

Apart from that we were required to submit a PPT also which we needed to present in a meeting scheduled after the completion of that task.

This helped us in formulating our own ideas and we were encouraged to do our task in a far more creative manner.

Bad Things

No bad things as such.



Details about accommodation and commute

N.A. – It being an online internship. 

Anything else?

Overall it was a good experience.

I learned a lot because of the interaction with different people I interacted with during the term of this internship.
