“The next two months will give the interns an opportunity to experience Samsung and its culture. They will get an opportunity to contribute to some interesting business properties and hone their skills with some of the best in the business”

Before these interns start working with their respective teams, they will go through a fun-filled two-day induction programme that will begin with an interaction with senior leaders at Samsung India.

“The next two months will give the interns an opportunity to experience Samsung and its culture. They will get an opportunity to contribute to some interesting business properties and hone their skills with some of the best in the business,” said Sameer Wadhawan, head-HR, Samsung India.

Keeping the sanctity of the saying, ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,’ the Company offers Zumba and Human Bingo sessions. Also, quizzes and games involving strategy are organised for the interns.

The lucky 37 also get a sneak peek into the history of Samsung, which had started its journey with a grocery store selling noodles in 1938.

One of the five core values of Samsung is ‘people’. The Company takes pride in giving people a wealth of opportunities to reach their full potential. It has excellent office spaces, which boost productivity and ensure a stress-free work environment.

“The interns get to explore the vibrant, youthful and energetic Samsung India headquarters on Gurugram’s Golf Course Road, which will be their home for the next two months,” says Wadhawan. “For Samsung, these interns are an investment in the future, ” he adds.
