It’s often-said internships are important because it gives the real taste of the corporate life. I did not know it was true until I went for my internship at Ageas Federal Life insurance company. It not only brushed up my theoretical knowledge via practical application but also gave me the opportunity to interact with clients on a face-to-face basis, which in turn helped me gain confidence, negotiation skills, and communication skills. The company acknowledged our endeavours, which boosted our morale even more, by hosting an award ceremony in which I received the best performer runner up title.

The holistic development I got through my internship is my foundation for the competitive professional world.
