Third year is the time when all students are scurrying to find some sort of internship. I was extremely lucky to get an internship as a Project Trainee at Tata Consultancy Services. Securing an internship from any other medium apart from campus internship programs is quite difficult. The easiest, although not the most reliable way to go about it is asking someone in the company you want to intern to forward your resume and an impressive cover letter to the H.R. of their department. They can in turn forward it to whomsoever concerned. This is the route I took. Luckily, I got a call from Tata Consultancy Services asking me to come and appear for an aptitude test. After clearing that stage I was required to complete other joining formalities.
I was assigned a project known as Global Insurance Pool which was a tool for Actuaries to calculate premiums based on the data subjected to different indicators. I was required to code parts of the project and design databases for the same. An extremely important thing to establish at start of an internship which is not part of an internship program is-A Mentor. This is extremely important as initially it is much easier to acclimatize and there is always someone you can go to time and again for help and feedback as he is fully aware of everything from start to finish. If there is a gap of sometime before you start your internship it would be a good idea to enquire about the technologies required on the project so as to not waste time learning them during the internship period.
