My Internship Role: Sales Intern
My key responsibilities: I was the Business Development Intern and my role to acquire new dealers for the company in various cities in Central India.
The impact that I made: My mentor had given me a target of acquiring 5 dealers during my internship. He was pleasantly surprised when I overachieved my target by acquiring 13 dealers at the end of my internship. According to the Terms and Conditions of the company for becoming an authorized dealer, a prospective dealer had to invest INR 2.5 Lacs. I made a BIG impact on the company’s financial turnover - 13 (dealers) * 2.5 (initial investment for becoming a dealer) = INR 32.5 Lacs.
What I learnt/Skills I picked up:
1. I learn’t how to make a sales pitch.
2. Working with a Start-Up.
3. How to Influence, Convince and Motivate an unwilling client to take the dealership of the company.
4. To use different channels of advertising – newspaper ad.
5. Networking Opportunity with the Top Management of the company.
Would I recommend an internship in this company to my friends: Sure – Not a bad place to intern in
