It’s time for the Summer Saga Contest 2014. A lot of you would have just returned from your summer internship. We are hunting for the best stories of your summer internships. Some of you would have beaten the heat, sitting in an air-conditioned cubicle, staring at excel sheets all day long. Some others may have been sent to remote villages and towns, in the sweltering 45-degree heat. Some may have gone abroad, and enjoyed the good life, while others may have tasted life in a start-up, and yet others may have had no work to do at all.
Everyone has a story. Do you have one? If yes, start typing. Now. The winner gets a cash prize of Rs.15,000. The runner-up gets a cash prize of Rs.5000
The best 5 experiences will be highlighted on InsideIIM.com and will win a Calvin & Hobbes comic book! It will also serve as a great accomplishment on your resume!
We will also declare the ‘Campus with the most Interesting Interns’ based on the entries from all the campuses. (Minimum number of entries for a campus to be considered for this title – 10)
The entries will be judged on two main parameters : 1) Usefulness for future readers 2) How interesting the articles are
It will be preferred if these aspects are covered in the write-up :
1. Brief outline of the project
2. Most challenging aspect of the job
3. Most enjoyable aspect of the job
4. Greatest learning
