If you’re an avid user of social media, especially twitter, you’d be familiar with the phenomena of ‘Cancel Culture’.  In case you aren’t, the expression “cancelling” or “calling out” first made its debut somewhere in 2015 but became widely used in 2018. To put it simply, cancel culture can be understood as a form of...
“The most difficult things in life are saying hello for the first time, and saying goodbye for the last time.” As the one-month period of internships came to an end, I was feeling the exact opposite of what I thought I would at the beginning of the month. I had begun my internship dreading the...
The first week of my development sector internship in animal welfare was majorly getting oriented with the different departments of the organisation. The second week though was much more dynamic with a lot of tasks at hand. Having been given the responsibility of the annual newsletter project, along with the annual calendar, my work profile...
The first three weeks of the internship will fly by, one second the HR is setting up your company email account and the next minute you are neck deep in excel sheets, calculating the reach, impression and engagement of every post under the sun.  A lot of the work that’s given to you can seem...
In juxtaposition to the overly packed and adrenaline-charged first week that was, its following counterpart turned out to be relatively laid back. More or less on the desk, the primitive work revolved entirely around on reviving an old organization newsletter that hadn’t come out with an edition for the past eight years & focusing on...
As the weeks progressed in my internship, my free hours in the office kept reducing. By the middle of third week, I experienced almost all the things a full-time employee does. I was nervous because of a deadline, I had multiple projects at hand, numerous people to answer to and I was perpetually tired. Work...
Each week, I would come in to the office with audaciously high hopes of being delegated some sort of work. For the first two weeks, I had no luck. Come Monday morning, and our senior calls us in for a meeting. He begins discussing a bunch of topics from a list. “Pick two”, he said....
I know you don’t want to screw up your first internship. You may take a breath of relief because I’m here to the rescue (just like Pepper Potts). I request you to not act like Dwight Schrute from ‘The Office’. Trying too hard to please your mentor won’t row your boat. Now this would sound...
Dear ‘It’s my first time in the industry and I am freaking out’, There’s only so much that I can say or do that will change your perception of the industry as a dark, scary place that will eat you alive and spit you out. The industry, however, is far from it, well mostly. From...
“I want a job which requires everyday travel,” I remember proclaiming before the college break. But two weeks into my internship and I am still not used to the hours of travel on workdays. Between begging dad to drop me off when he has work to funding UAE’s public transportation on a regular basis, calling...
