My virtual summer internship at TVS Credit was a once in a lifetime experience. A strong focus on innovation and a culture to push boundaries has made TVS Credit one of the most trustworthy brands in the country.
I appreciate the HR team's diligent work to ensure a smooth transition of the Summer Internship program to the virtual mode. They left no stone unturned in engaging the interns through their initiatives.
The internship started with the Leadership Talk series. Here, the senior management from the TVS Credit family enlightened us with insights about the company and the NBFC sector as a whole.
This 8-week experience helped me develop my skill set and gain a holistic understanding of brand engagement and the NBFC industry. The virtual internship was challenging, but, the work culture and environment made it a great and seamless learning experience.
The core values of TVS Credit are the driving force and is ingrained in everything that they do. Thus creating an effective working environment, with great learning and networking opportunities. As an intern, I was welcomed in almost all the activities happening in the company, from focused work to fun catch up sessions.
As part of my project, I had the opportunity to create a YouTube vlog series. The focus of the project was to improve brand presence and engagement - with our existing and potential customers. This helped me understand the importance of content and storytelling in brand engagement. I also got first hand experience in task ownership and the perspective to deal with real-time challenges. The project challenged me on many aspects and demanded me to work out of my comfort zone.
The kind of work independence provided by my mentor during my internship period was unparalleled. A strong support system provided by him and the team helped me have a structured approach to the problems at hand. Their constant support during the internship made this experience phenomenal. My aim is to build on this enriching and valuable experience in TVS Credit.
Though I spent just a few weeks with TVS Credit, it has left a long-lasting impact, both personally and professionally. I want to take this opportunity to thank every single person who made this internship a memorable and enriching one.
