A fulfilling internship experience? There's an app for that!

The global workplace calls for applying the skills you've learnt at college, as well as networking. Wouldn't it be great if you could find a nurturing environment, inhabited by people from all over the world, who would help you enhance your skills, and remain friends long after you've moved on to bigger challenges?

Well, such a place exists, and I discovered it when I applied for the Infosys InStep internship program. During my internship search, I had no intention of going abroad for an internship. But I'm glad I applied, because it was one of the most interesting experiences of my life. 

My reluctance to do an internship abroad disappeared when I got in touch with the InStep team, who were very helpful and made the application and orientation process very smooth, and took care of the logistics. 

When I arrived at Infosys, I was assigned to a project with the Application Development and Maintenance division. The project involved automating the process of code architecture modernization from monoliths to microservices. It was very satisfying to apply my theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. During weekends, I and my fellow interns explored fascinating places in India, which taught me to 'expect the unexpected.'  

What made my time as an InStep intern truly special was the opportunity to meet and work with interns from around the world. My biggest takeaway from my InStep experience is the lifelong relationships forged with interns.
