Share Your Internship Experiences And Win Prizes! – Class Of 2019 – Summer Saga

Hello! Class of 2019,

You have almost completed the two most important months of your MBA career. The experience and learnings of these two months are what will shape you as a professional and give a new direction to your career. From the preparation for the summer placements to the 8 weeks of your internship, the experiences have just made you a stronger professional. But who says the experience has to end here? InsideIIM gives you a chance to share the experience of your internship with your batchmates, other b-school students, campus managers of different companies, thousands of users, and more importantly, with your juniors.

Do you remember the time just before the internship where you had no clue what you are going to do? Do you remember the sheer panic when you didn’t know what it’s like to work at that company? You can help your juniors be better prepared by simply sharing your internship experience. Be the coach, the mentor you needed a few months ago. Here’s how –

InsideIIM presents the 5th Season of Summer Saga where you can share your crazy, enriching, and fun experiences with everyone and win prizes for the same. Whether you spent two months in a cold cubicle or made your way through the streets in the heat. If there’s even one thing you learned from your internship, you are eligible to participate in this competition. Maybe this will make you reflect on the two months as well. We have the perfect platform to chronicle your experience; your highs, your lows and everything in between.
