Rohan’s Rockin’ Summer as an Intern

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

With my first year at S.P Jain, I saw myself grow and step out of my comfort zone. The highlight of the academic year being the regional immersion project, helped me build my networking and communication skills. Thereafter, I was keen on applying all my learnings in the practical environment which is when my quest for an internship began. I applied for over 50 positions and finally achieved a position as a Marketing Intern at DSM, Singapore during the summer of 2017.

DSM, a leading nutrition, health and life sciences company, offered me to work in their Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.50.13 AMhuman nutrition and health department. I was overwhelmed with the work I got. The whole experience of having my own desk in such a big organisation under the guidance of the director, provided me with immense exposure.

My work involved:

  • Developing an “IdeaKit” consisting of various videos which described products and their claims.
  • Mapping market trends and opportunities through research portals and proposing growth strategies and opportunities.
  • Analysing product compositions for strategic market positioning
  • Drafting content for product descriptions and designing product labels for various prototypes.
  • I also got to attend partner meetings with other renowned organisations as well.

I couldn’t have asked for a better outlet to do my bit for animal welfare, a cause very dear to my heart. I was fortunate enough to be a part of WWF- Singapore as a volunteer.

My work involved:

  • Event management and operations for school term engagements and youth engagements for the “Into The Wild” exhibition at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore. I helped in conducting augmented reality workshops based on endangered species and spread awareness about sustainable measures to safeguard the lives of animals.
  • I developed and edited a video for “World Elephant Day”.
  • I also wrote an article on the use of sustainable palm oil.

With such diverse set of skills that I have gained over the past 1 year, friends who have become family and a bag full of memories, I am all set to achieve even greater heights in my second year.

I can’t wait to see what Dubai has in store for all of us!
