InStep internship: In Step with the Future

InStep, Infosys’ global internship program, held the induction ceremony for its eighth batch of interns in June 2007 at Bangalore. Present on the occasion were 50 interns who will intern in Bangalore over the next few months. The company recruits 125 interns from 54 universities in different countries for the FY 2007-2008 to work in its foreign divisions as well as in India. Talking about the program, N.R. Narayana Murthy, Chairman and Chief Mentor, Infosys Technologies said, “The InStep internship program helps interns become better global citizens and further enhances their careers.”

Endorsing the value of the InStep experience, Anup Thantry, an intern at InStep says, “I had studied at the Asian Institute of Management, Philippines. The interactions on a global platform are mainly through video-conferencing, which is a new experience. There are cultural challenges to deal with the interns from different nationalities and this helps one grow.”

Speaking about her InStep experience, Brianna Dieter, BA, Smith College, currently employed with Infosys Technologies in Bangalore as Executive - Academic Relations, said, “After completing my internship with the Global Academic Relations team in 2005, I realized I wanted to gain more business experience in an emerging economy and I chose to return to Infosys for this reason.”

The InStep program, started in 1999, is an intensive 8 to 24 week internship program that gives students hands-on experience across various projects within the company including application development, business consulting, Marketing, Corporate Planning, and Software Engineering.
