This summer, MBA students across the country saw a very different picture than what they had previously. With the pandemic forcing everything to shut down, physical internships were out of the picture this year. Many companies froze their internships, many deferred, and some even canceled. With things going on pretty haywire for these interns, the sigh of relief came to this year’s Tata Steel interns when they saw their joining mails. Amidst all the difficulties, Tata Steel went on with taking in all the interns it had promised an internship. In this episode, we look at the internship experience of Nitya Aman Bhagat from TISS, Mumbai, and Mayurakhee Dutta from Xavier University, Bhubaneswar at Tata Steel.
