Summer Internship, I was told, was one of the most important part of my MBA as I would get a chance to apply the knowledge gathered and get a reality check on my progress over the first year. So, naturally, I was all excited to start my internship at Feedback Infra Services Pvt. Ltd. – a Consulting firm in Gurgaon, which provides services in varied domains extending from Energy, Transport and Hospitals to Real estate.
I am doing internship in the Energy Domain, specifically in Transmission & Distribution under able guidance of my company Guide and would like to share my first month’s experience. On the very first day, a project on “”Detailed Analysis of Privatization of Transmission & Distribution” was allotted to me. The scope of project was to carry out a detailed study of the Power Transmission & Distribution sector from the very beginning – i.e., the inception of the first Electricity Act 1910. I happen to have worked in Transmission & Distribution for almost 4 years in Reliance Power Transmission Ltd. and was expecting to work on something new during my internship. Nonetheless, I was kicked about it as I saw this as an opportunity to delve deeper into the history of one of the greatest discovery of all times – Electricity.
I was determined to prove my mettle with this study and to improve my prospects at getting better projects in the future. This was one of the numerous life lessons I learnt from my professors during my first year at Great Lakes – that in order to get something, you must first deserve it. So I worked and worked and worked hard for it. And it paid off too, as my next was a live project on “Market Assessment of EPC Companies in Transmission & Distribution” for a foreign investor.
It has been little over a month since I joined and I have got the opportunity to work and be a part of about 10 different projects out of which, two were specially assigned to me by the Associate Director of Feedback Infra. Some of the projects are tough as no data or information is readily available for analysis but that’s what has made work fun – especially making reports after analyzing different upcoming/projected programs in the power sector.
My first month here at Feedback Infra, was very challenging to say the least but there was also a lot to learn and I would like to thank my mentors at Great Lakes for providing me such a wonderful opportunity.
