How an Internship at Infinite Engineers Shaped Prasanna’s Life

Internship Experience, Internship Stories

Students tend to go to an internship because it offers you the chance to learn by doing in a setting where you are supervised by a workplace professional and have the opportunity to achieve your own learning goals. But how does an internship change a person?

Prasanna is a mechanical engineering student at Rajalakshmi Engineering College, he along with his friends was at Infinite Engineers for a one month internship and shares his experience with us.

I completed my exams and on the next day I was here for my internship. I had a different perception of how a start up would work, I was thinking that people will be serious and work in an organized manner like it is shown in the movies. When i came here everything was different, after coming here I strongly agree with the term “learning with fun”, it was like going to your cousins house but a small difference is you learn a lot. Everyone here were unique and work as a family.

Before coming here I thought i would be asked to do a lot of paperwork, data entry works and other stuff, but to my surprise they gave me a lot of research work, they kept us more involved made us talk to different people from companies and a lot more which helped me develop my skills.The  mentors here kept us involved in different projects and helped us learn new things.

During this internship, I developed my personality,attitude and communication skills, these are something I consider as basic human skills. I was an introvert, I was shy even to call and order a Pizza, but over the month I have become more comfortable communicating with people. We were asked to phone and speak to companies, I talked to about 40 different people and it’s something I could never had imagined doing before coming here.

The internship was nothing short of a remarkable journey wherein I got ample opportunities to enhance my skills, prove my mettle, learn new things and develop myself as better person.
