My overall experience
This being my very first internship I was very nervous in the beginning, but there was many more like me and members of organisation was very supportive to interns
My major tasks at organisation were to prepare questionnaire for survey of non-school going children, took survey with team and report to organisation. Being very new to research, I was constantly helped by my team head at every point. I got the opportunity to read and research a lot.
I also took the initiative to volunteer for their event and attend some of their meetings, which helped me to network with people apart from my team.
Overall, this was an excellent experience for me. I have a come out a lot better person after this internship.
If you want to apply your skill, than go for field job.
