HI FMSites / Satwinder,
The internship has got over and an entire month lies ahead to unwind; you people have no idea how jealous the other interns were when they came to know about our 3 month holiday duration
ATB to the PPI getters (convert it into the PPO) and also to those who are awaiting the decision. For those who didnt get one, better things await you (i know it is a cliche but surprisingly it is true)
Internships have come to an end for a lot of us and for others they are gonna finish in this week. Trust me fellas - internship teaches you a lot be it the tangible learnings or the intangible learnings !!!!
@ New joinees - few pointers. I want to let you know of some things which might put you in good stead for the things to come
(1) You will be getting an assignment to do in a few days from now ( it is called the Pre Session Assignment (PSA) ) which you would have to submit by the first day of the term. This assignment will help you in understanding the basics of the various streams (finance/marketing/HR/consulting/Operations) in FMS and hence can be helpful
(2) In addition to the above, an online induction program was launched for us last year. In it competitions were launched by various societies which can be helpful if taken in the right spirit.
(3) CV's - Collect all the proofs for the points you want to put down in your resume's for the summer placements. Given the time you have before the session starts it will prove to be very beneficial for you considering the time crunch you will face when you are once in the college. Collecting proofs for CV points is one of the most tedious jobs in first semester; so the sooner you do it, the better for you !!!
(4) Look forward to your inboxes - you will be getting information from FMS with regards to the PSA, the online induction thing, a document from the student body listing down a lot of information for you, right from the different societies in place to the best eating joints around !!!!!
Finally, feel proud of yourself that you have made it past the gates of one of the finest colleges in a country which has 1.2 billion residents.
I live in Chandigarh. So, the chandigarh joinees let me know if you need some help
Till the next post, take care
