Words cannot describe how crucial JRTC’s assistance was when it came to getting an internship for the month of October 2018. It will not come as a surprise if I were to say, that bagging an internship, with top lawyers of the country, is a difficult endeavor, if not a mentally harrowing one. This might sound – exaggerating, but, a lot us have felt it that way, in varying intensities. The reasons for this are many and I feel it is pertinent to mention - that it is not solely the oft-cited reasons (we all know what they are) that are at play. One major reason as to why we have a tough time bagging a good internship is – not being able to channelize our skills – research, mooting, debating, in the right direction. We have a certain skill set and then we have our goals, the brutal part is that, our skill sets might not be akin to our goals. It is not about – not being competent enough, it is about whether we have everything to reach the goal we want. I would now like to emboss JRTC’s role in my career in the backdrop of the picture I just painted. When I first got in touch with them, this is the truth they made me realize. I might want an internship under a certain lawyer; however, I might not have those skills yet which I can put to good use while working under her/him.
This was the best part of JRTC because this made me realize that it is more than just doling out opportunities. They are holding up the mirror for you. JRTC helped me get an internship under one of the top lawyers the country akin to my skill set. This was not done overnight, this was a constant endeavor that spread over two weeks. They got in touch with me a number of times, just to know, what I wanted, and what sort an opportunity I am seeking. They considered each aspect – number of internships, area of interest, plans, knowledge of the law in the interested area, year in which I will be graduating, and then helped me get an internship. Word cannot describe how indebted I am to the team, and that is not solely for the internship, that’s more for instilling that small ray of hope in me that it is possible to get a good internship if you have the requisite skill set.
