The Internship Experience:

“My responsibilities…”

As a Software Engineer Intern, my main responsibilities included Requirement Analysis, Design, Coding and Testing/QA. I was working on enhanced CSV Reader support for WebAction platform. I had to also ensure that the code should be of world class quality and should be highly optimized and reusable. In a nutshell, my company expected of me to exhibit a deeper understanding of computers. I learned different programming paradigms and I am still learning…

“I was the only fresher…”

.. and it was great ! The best thing happened towards the end of my internship when my mentor said ‘Fantastic’ on finishing a module and it boosted my morale. The others in the team were highly experienced and it was quite difficult to catch up with them, but they all made me feel comfortable, supported and motivated me throughout.

I was given a a module with specifications and had to implement it. I was given full freedom to implement it, with the only requirement that the implementation meets the specifications. It was a good coding practice and I learned different perspectives to solve a problem.

The impact I made were somewhere between small and big, but it was a great hands on experience.

“I’m a permanent employee now…”

 My Cloud 9 moment was when my mentor (Mr. Mahadevan LakshmiNarayanan) discussed about my future with the company after my internship and my expected salary!!!

It was really an enriching experience interning at WebAction. Happy to say that I’m a permanent employee now and the nature of work is fantastic. A perfect place for tech-savvy computer engineers to work. Last but not the least, I am working on a brand new MacBook pro with retina display, its awesome.

To describe my internship in one word,I would say – Stupendous. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends!
