What and how many internships and projects you did at college? How did you get them?

I did three internships by the end of my second year. One of them was a marketing intern at a startup company, while the other two were internships with big brands. In my first year, I worked with the Enterprise Business Team of Samsung India Electronics while I worked with the Advisory team- Grant Thornton India in my second year.

 

How did you prepare for the internship season?

Because most of my summer was spent working for my internships, I did not have much time to prepare for the internship season. The aptitude test does not require any preparation as such. Solving puzzles and practicing quant questions from various books and online sources helps. Being a part of the Debating Society, I was exposed to case studies right from my first year. Attending competitions helped me strengthen my problem solving skills.

 

What’s the role of academics in getting a good internship at NSIT?

Academics does play a significant role in getting a good internship. A good percentage is an indication of constant efforts all through-out the year. You are eligible to sit for most companies with about 65%, however anything around 75% definitely gives you an edge over the others.

 

Would you like to give any general advice to your juniors?

Interact with as many seniors as you can. They always have the best advice.

Pursue your interests outside academics as well. Contribute to societies because they give you a real exposure of how things work.Explore as many options as you can.

Believe in yourself and try to maintain a balance between extra-curricular activities and academics.
