Internship do’s and dont’s – has Coviam nailed the internship hiring process? – Part 1

In January 2017, I had the opportunity to intern at Coviam. I was selected on campus. I would need another post just to share my interview experience, which was unlike the other ones I had given.

Friendly and smart:
The interviewers were extremely smart, friendly and were willing to discuss at lengths.

Keep it conversational:
We talked about my projects and things I was interested in, rather than a typical Q&A format. It was more a conversation and a discussion.

Be Patient:
Though they had some pretty tough problems, but they patiently helped me through the solutions and insisted that I talk through them, which helped me solve a couple of problems of the kinds I’d never tried before. My gut feeling about this company has always been on the positive note.

Research and go in eyes wide open:
After receiving the internship letter, I looked up for everything and anything that  I could retrieve about Coviam on the internet. I came across a few reviews on Glassdoor that were really good, so the only remaining idea was I had to experience the journey oneself.

At the back of my mind an internship was a place were a few college grads are performing trivial tasks, hoping to have something to fill their resumes with, but my perception was about to change in the following months.

Here’s Part 2.
