How did you apply for the internship?
I applied for the internship through the platform Internshala where this opportunity had been posted.
I created my CV within Internshala itself which gets submitted along with other assessment questions like ‘why do you want to apply for this internship?’
and ‘whether you are available for the provided time period immediately or what is the earliest date from which you can join?’
I filled in the relevant information and submitted my application.
After a preliminary review of my application, I was contacted through a chat and given a Test Task that I needed to complete. I did and was hired.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
All communication was made through WhatsApp.
I was provided basic instructions about the role of a social media intern on the first day, how things will work, and the nature and time period of the tasks.
The main tasks were creating awareness about this site and bringing followers to The Legal Lock’s Instagram page, Linkedin account, and WhatsApp groups.
I was also required to circulate messages and updates that were given by The Legal Lock in my college groups.
I was given certain targets that I needed to achieve weekly.
The internship was virtual, regardless, the work environment was accommodative.
The work pressure wasn’t much which made it easier to continue along with other curricular and co-curricular activities.
It helped me in enhancing communication skills, engaging in meaningful discussions, and building strong professional connections.
The targets were sometimes hard to meet and that became a bit stressful.
The stipend given was performance-based and it was issued by the end of the one-month period.
Details about accommodation and commute
Not applicable as the internship was virtual and hence the only relevant infrastructure required was one’s presence on social media along with a good internet connectivity.
This was a good experience as it provided me the opportunity to enhance my communication and leadership skills, network and engage in meaningful discussions, and build strong connections.
