How much time did you contribute on a daily basis?
Share your proudest achievements and how were you able to realise them.
I believe getting the internship in itself was a very proud moment for me. Not many people were selected for it and the interview consisted of many technical questions.
During the internship, I took every day as a challenge and did all the tasks assigned to me. Completing all the tasks at the end of the day was an achievement for me.
What are the top learnings, skills and values that you acquired here?
- Skills – Advanced Excel, SAP, better communication, hands-on experience while dealing with clients etc
- Values – I was under an amazing person. He was the head of HR and I still admire him. Admire him a lot! He was very simple and highly knowledgeable. He taught me a lot about life in general.
Do you feel this experience is a stepping stone towards success in life? Illustrate how the experience gained will help you going forward in your career.
Yes, although I’m not sure if I’ll be working in a corporate again as I have my own start-up however the experience, values and skills will surely not go waste.
What is your advice to those, who are aspiring the same or a similar internship?
If you’re going for a field like finance, your technical skills might just come over and above your soft skills. Focus on that 🙂
