“Hi ConnectInc – just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for introducing me to this programme and providing me with the ultimate work experience in Bangalore, India. It’s amazing how a 3 month internship turned into a full time work position which led to a lot more exploring and travelling throughout India. I never expected the internship to keep me in India for over a year, but it has been the most cherished year of my life. Hope to come back again soon.”
I just wanted to say Thank You for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime! After graduation I was unsure of what I wanted to do and where I wanted to be and coming onto your internship programme really helped solve these dilemmas for me. Who knew that a 3 month internship in Bangalore working for an events company would lead to a full time offer, me relocating and working in India for a year and realising that what I really wanted to do was to work in the events sector!
I have had an incredible work experience with an amazing agency – Phase1 Events, who from the offset gave me a lot of responsibility and autonomy over my work, allowing to me learn an immense amount about the industry. Although working in the marketing team, I was able to learn about the work undertaken in the design, content, production and finance teams also, giving me a holistic learning experience which I really appreciated.
The work I undertook included a number of key event projects and even managing some of my own clientele to provide them with event solutions from conceptualisation through to execution. My highlights include: the launch of the first ever Ritz Carlton Hotel in India, the launch of the JW Marriott hotel, Fastrack Helmet Launch, Titan SKINN Fragrance Launch and the Tanishq Bridal Event. Without the ConnectInc internship, none of this would have been real! I can happily say I have achieved an immense amount, professionally, through this work experience.
The internship programme also opened me up to a whole new experience which was living in a totally different country. This was another amazing and yet new experience for me also, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It gave me the opportunity to broadly travel around India and see places such as Goa, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Punjab, Pondicherry and not to forget most of Bangalore! The internship programme also introduced me to meeting a number of new people, who over time I have become really good friends with. Who knew I would make the best of friends from the other side of the world! Furthermore, living with the rest of the interns, socialising, going out most evenings and exploring the city together was a lot of fun and helped create a lot of long lasting friendships and memories.
The team at ConnectInc were extremely helpful throughout the internship in providing their support and guidance where needed, helping me to settle in and even recommending the best hangout places to check out, which was very useful when in a new place. Their 24/7 availability was also much appreciated and made one feel comfortable when faced with a query or situation, when many miles away from home.
I believe overall the internship programme by ConnectInc was exceptionally amazing! Their ability to provide hands on work experiences for students such as myself have proved to be highly valuable! I have learnt a vast amount about the events sector through my internship which was followed by a full time work contract and I believe this together with the international work exposure aspect will definitely make me stand out when applying for jobs in the UK on my return.
Thank you for one of the best experiences of my life ConnectInc!
