As a key responsible person to analysis & design a web based portal at Syntel, Atit prepared artifacts like database model diagram, business process modelling diagrams, user interface layouts and system architecture design, to successfully develop a new portal from scratch.
He shares different aspects of his internship experience in this Interview:
Careers360: Where did you complete your summer internship? What was the size of the company?
Atit Shah: I did my summer internship at Syntel Ltd., which aims at delivering high end solutions to its almost 2000 clients in a more efficient and innovative way. In the duration of my internship, i learned how to get insights from the customer requirements and business and then to apply innovations into operations. The company has around 25000 employees worldwide. Syntel's ‘Customers for Life’ philosophy made me focus on hands on experience along with business results.
Careers360: What project did you work on? What was the timeline for execution of different stages of the project?
Atit Shah: I was fortunate enough that the Company trusted me and gave me an opportunity to work on an important project, where I was a key responsible person. I was working on an internal project to design a web based portal for the company. The Analysis & Design stages of the portal were expected to be completed in 2 months. In the entire two months, the portal has to be developed from scratch and later made functional on the front end.
Careers360: Please share your project summary.
Atit Shah: A web based portal was required by the company to manage its routine operational activities. My key responsibility was to analysis & design this web based portal. As part of the designing, I was required to prepare various artifacts like database model diagram, business process modelling diagrams, user interface layouts and system architecture design. I also had to guide the developers with the development of the portal. Being a part of the Designing and Technical department, the only summary about the project was to develop a portal for a company to maintain its daily business functions.
Careers360: How did you executed on the project? What was your stratergy?
Atit Shah: My strategy was to focus on the project completely. The focus was to make sure that not even a single feature or programme of the portal is left out. I completed the Analysis & Design stages of the project and also helped the developers to kick-start the Development stage.
Careers360: What were the key challenges that you faced during your internship?
Atit Shah: The project was quite challenging as the portal had to be made from scratch. In the Analysis stage, I had to engage with various stakeholders for understanding the existing processes, which is important to know as you have to work on the same business and functional models which the company is following.
Within a short time span of 2 months, I had to learn, understand, develop and deliver the project which was challenging. Also, translating the requirements fetched from the Analysis stage into various design artifacts was a challenging task. But the project was delivered to the expectations of the clients, and that is all what matters.
Careers360: What were your learning’s while doing the project and experince after the completion of the project?
Atit Shah: I learned a lot during my internship at Syntel, it was an experience, an opportunity and a challenge that made me have more confidence in myself. During my internship the project gave me great insights on how to design IT systems along with an exposure to IT project management. After the completion of my summer internship, I was prepared to face the challenges and actually was more open to accept them, work hard and achieve results.
Careers360: How did your corporate mentor supported you to execute your internship? How did you connected with your academic mentor?
Atit Shah: My corporate mentor at Syntel was very experienced and cooperative. He guided me throughout the project. If I use to get stuck somewhere, he was always there to support, guide and motivate me. We had daily reviews of my work which helped me to deliver quality output within the stipulated timeframe. I used to connect with my mentor via emails on a weekly basis and use to share reviews and other outputs.
Careers360: How was your interaction with other employees during your internship period? Would you like to come back to the company for a job?
Atit Shah: We use to have both formal and informal interactions every week. My seniors and colleagues use to have this interaction so as work burden could be shared, problems could be discussed, and technical issues could be handled along with other motivational talks. The work environment was very good and supportive. I would definitely like to join the company and work towards my aim, get challenging opportunities and grow along with the organization.
Careers360: Share a memorable incident from your internship days.
Atit Shah: In the end of my internship a surprise farewell party was organised by my colleagues which is quite memorable. I still miss working under the deadlines, the fun at lunch, gossips, discussions and exposure to new learnings.

my may mat composite score is 761 & 99.09 percentile .can i take addmission in top mms colleges like simsree,pumba etc
It's really good to hear that you scored 99.09 percentile in MAT but sadly from this year, The official body responsible for MMS admissions has denied to take scores of MAT and ATMA and GMAT.
Because of this decision you won't be able to get MMS in these colleges but yes you can get PGDM in the top colleges like NL Dalmia, SIES, MET etc.
For getting admission in MMS, CET registration is compulsory and you should have a valid score of CET, CAT or CMAT

With such a good percentile you will be able to get into Sydenham Institute of Management Studies Research and Entrepreneurship Education (SIMSREE).
