Read edited excerpts:

Tell us about your internship experience please?

It was a very pleasant experience that introduced me to the working sphere of the world. My working hours were from 9 AM to 5 PM, sometimes even till 6 PM, with alternate working Saturdays. It wasn’t in hybrid mode. My work revolved around customer handling and loan procedures largely among other minor tasks at the bank. 

Were you campus placed?

Yes! I got this opportunity through ASM. 

 The college professors must have groomed you well for this?

Yes, they trained me for the personal interview round. They taught me the minor details that enhance one’s personality in front of the panel. I thank them a lot. 

And how has the journey been at ASM so far?

It has been very good. The course is taking me one step closer to my ambitions. The professors are so amiable and helpful and the classes are going good as well.  I am learning something new with each lecture and assignment.

So what’s the top value you’ve picked up from the campus?

I think it has to be punctuality and multi-tasking. Both are pillars of success in modern workplaces. 

Finally, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I see myself in a top marketing or operations company with a great package. Fingers crossed!
