Being in H.R profession and having 3 years of working experience in Project Management Operations, Summer Internship was always very exciting to me to prove myself again in my dream H.R projects. The dreams became more exciting when BMW came to my campus and shortlisted me as one among toppers of my HR class.

What is this internship experience? I define it as Ye Dil Maange (Mapping of receptions and expectations & re-expectations). As soon as BMW came to my IMI Delhi campus & selected me for internship, my expectations were on the peak of visualising 6-sigman curve.

On joining, I was bit excited that I will give my project proposals; nonetheless that project was not even started due to a different requirements. Requirement Analysis was my very first learning there. He informed me that next day there was H.R team brainstorm meeting at Hyatt and I was invited to participate in that using my HR learned concepts. I saw him brainstorming with managers & prepared and analysed Minute of Meeting for them. The first receivable to me was this add-on Brainstorm Facilitator skill on my Linkedin profile. But How?


My summer internship project was based on immediate requirement to follow up with employee satisfaction survey results. Every learning organization conducts employee satisfaction survey (ESS), but how may really link it to business vision, mission & objectives? How many really consider the survey result seriously? Implementing the action plan based on employee voice is uttermost important but how many really come up with strategic action plan after ESS?


My projects at summer internship answers to above mentioned issues. My project proposal was to implement brainstorm workshops based on critical issues of ESS results involving employees. With approval from the top management; I took the responsibility of implementation of brainstorm workshops among all grade employees of BMW plant and further analyzed & documented it and prepared a set of final action plan along with long-term “Total Reward” framework for BMW.


While my other friends were interning at RPG, Nestle, HUL, etc where the Summer Internship process was all defined with clear guidelines & BMW gave me timely perception as I was not an intern but an employee. They involved me with their existing problems in H.R areas and smartly I converted most of them in my internship projects. The management was happier than me as they got their projects done and at the same time I was presenting them benchmarked analysis.

My first hand experience was definitely not good but a wonderful very good, not only because of project implementations and regular appreciations, but also because of the association with workforce, rather employees out there. I have respect to them for their participation in my brainstorm workshops and research surveys.


I learnt even simple administrative H.R setup where involving employees in decision making (my brainstorm NOVA project) was a way ahead of this strategic HR Consultancy world. I realized – My dream was more to implement the HR practicesand that what I did during my 2 months tenure. Seeing respect for H.R manager there and how they were so much responsible for employees, I am proud to say that I am also an H.R Professional.
