Aashish Goyal, a student of Hindu College of Engineering, tells us about his experience with Internshala and his journey that began with looking for an internship and ended with looking for interns.

About the Author: Aashish Goyal, a student of Hindu College of Engineering, talks about his experience with Internshala. He joined Internshala as a student and after launching his own startup, he used the same platform to hire interns.

I began my college in 2013 with a hope of learning and exploring new horizons. After my first year of college ended, my seniors introduced me to the concept of internships and the importance they hold. I googled internships for further information and stumbled upon Internshala. Though I didn’t apply to any internships at that time, I registered myself on the platform.


I would often receive emails from them regarding various campaigns. One such email was regarding the 5th edition of their flagship program – Internshala Student Partners. I found it exciting and applied for it. After a month-long wait, I came to know that I had been selected as an ISP. As an ISP, I performed various activities to market Internshala in my college and introduce it to the students there. Having performed exceptionally well, I was promoted to an ISP buddy for the next edition of the ISP program. This 6-month venture saw me leading a team of 110 students and inculcated essential leadership skills in me. I helped the ISPs in organising different activities, solved their queries, and motivated them to perform better.

Meanwhile, I was applying to various internships on Internshala, waiting for the right opportunity to come my way. Initially, I would make various mistakes while applying to the internships, but with the passage of time, I improved upon them. I applied to a content writing internship at Smarterjon, a company based in Delhi. I was shortlisted and called in for an interview. The interview revolved around the work profile and lasted for about 15 minutes. Soon, I was informed of my selection there. I joined the organisation and was responsible for writing content about the services that the company was offering. During the internship, I worked with some amazing team members and developed essential work ethics and humility.

I also applied to an internship at Internshala itself. After shortlisting my application, the HR manager contacted me for a telephonic interview wherein I was asked about my family and educational background. She asked me relevant questions about the profile that I had applied for. The next day, she informed me that I had cleared that round and was asked to come for an in-office interview with Sarvesh. Out of nervousness, I made some mistakes during my interview due to which I wasn’t hired. However, this experience gave me an insight into how a start-up functions and how the process of hiring runs smoothly.

As soon as I finished my graduation, I, along with three of my friends, started my own venture called Invincible Web Solutions. It is a startup that aims to spread awareness about the trending technologies among students and to achieve the same, we conduct workshops across different colleges. Within a short span of time, we covered around 10 colleges in Haryana and soon expanded our reach. Apart from conducting workshops, we also started providing digital marketing services to various clients. The office dimensions grew, and we launched a course named I M Digi – Be Digital, which provides professional training in digital marketing. As the need to expand the team arose, I turned to Internshala once again, only to hire interns this time.
