WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN OUR INTERNS?

We look for more than just academic excellence. We look for a global outlook, easy adaptability, cultural competence, resilience, good communication skills and a strong motivation to pursue the career of your dreams.

Global Outlook

With globalization our sphere of influence has grown but our business world has shrunk. To survive in this world, future leaders need to discard their “frog in the well” mindset with a global outlook. This is the kind of approach we look out for in our interns.

Career Drive

Without drive, there is no creativity, and without creativity the outcome is always poor. We actively lookout for interns who have a passion to grow and grow fast in their chosen career sphere.

Strong Communication

Strong communication skills can move mountains. We look for students who are good at both verbal and non-verbal skills, are attentive listeners, able to manage stressful work-related challenges and have the ability to communicate assertively and positively in an emotionally intelligent way.

Resilience

A business leader cannot cope with the fast-face world that we live in with a degree of resilience – to fight all odds. Resilient people are born problem-solvers. They can think out of the box and take proactive, informed decisions. This is another sterling quality we look for in our interns – the ability to manage adversity and business uncertainty to their definite advantage.

If you have these qualities, we’d be glad to get you on board..
