“Experiential Learning” is as valuable as anything learned in studies. An internship is a unique opportunity that gives an “on the job” experience along with general insights into the workings and culture of a company. Participating in internships can be a great way to get a taste of first-hand professional experience in a particular field. Nonetheless, internships are low-pressure entry to choose a career path.
“There is no substitute really for learning about the world of work and being in the world of work. You can do that through internships. You can do it through summer job experiences or even from volunteer jobs. Strive early to get some kind of practical experience.”– Alexis Herman
Being driven by the above-stated quote, Sectona has always emphasized on creating learning opportunities for beginners and students seeking internships with us. Interns associated with us are not restricted or caged with connotations.

Our Fundamentals For Internship:-
Continuing the above-shared ideology of curating distinctive independent projects for our interns, we generally aim to set projects with targets to reach by the end of their role along with first-hand pieces of training which would boost their careers. We create space to optimize their theoretical knowledge while dealing with real responsibilities and to assess their full capability.
The projects are designed in a way where each day comes with new challenges and even more opportunities to learn and grow. Role hierarchy and work culture are no different for an intern—they have a manager to report to, a team to work in collaboration with, and an opinion to share on the tasks.

Company culture plays a crucial part herewith and we continue to cultivate these principles in our team members.
