How does a Zoho internship look like? An internship shares all about the Zoho internship.
Name, College, year
Ratnesh Pareek, SRM School of Law, Chennai. I am a final year student of three-year course.
Organisation and address
Zoho is an Indian tech company offering products and services around the world.
I interned in their Chennai office, which is actually in the outskirts of Chennai but very near my college.
Duration of internship
I interned for a period of 6 months as a research intern.
The minimum period of internship offered by Zoho legal team is 2 months.
How you applied for the Zoho internship?
I applied through my college but if you wish to apply directly you can go to this link (https://bit.ly/2KHzc6A) and fill all the mandatory fields and attach your resume.
If you are shortlisted, you will get a call from HR within a week.
First day formalities, infrastructure, first impression
Zoho has a very big campus with all the amenities.
After all the documentation formalities, I was explained about my work and introduced to the team. I was given an ID card and a laptop to work.
It is mandatory to wear your ID card all the time. Security is taken very seriously at Zoho.
My research was primarily on data protection laws.
I got a chance to work on data protection laws of various countries and understand how they applied to Zoho’s business.
I also got to work on various other laws such as electronic signature and powers of law enforcement authorities to request for data.
While I worked exclusively on research, there were other interns who worked on drafting assignments.
Good things about the Zoho internship
All the people in the office are friendly. You can approach any of them for any doubt and the best thing was that my mentor was always accessible and friendly.
I never had to go outside to eat as ZOHO provides good food to every employee and intern.
ZOHO offers only paid internships and a good amount of stipend is paid depending on the skills and the work of each intern.
In any case, they pay more than what is required for a comfortable stay and to meet day-to-day expenses.
I was paid 15,000/- at the beginning and 25,000/- after a couple of months.
Accommodation, commuting to the office
I took an apartment on rent near the office. There are many share autos that you can use to commute.
People who are not from Chennai can easily find a PG or apartment on rent.
