Filled with vim and vigor, our interns brought in tonnes of positivity to Zluri. We would love to call our interns our fireballs.
With pandemic on one side and business goals on another, we looked for people with fresh ideas. That's when we found these young and chirpy lads who were interested in helping Zluri grow and, at the same time, gain some experience working with us.
Zluri welcomed 15 incredibly talented interns to work in DevOps, Marketing, and the Design team. Out of the 15, 13 were from BITS Pilani, one was from Jaypee Institutions, and the other from Chameli Devi Group of Institutions. With just a couple of months since their joining, they transformed Zluri into an all-new place with their enigmatic minds. They are playing a crucial role in helping Zluri propel beyond and above.
The seniors in Zluri shared their wisdom with the young champs and briefed them the- in and out of SaaS management, helping them ace their role in a few days. We also offered them the space to explore more and work in other departments if they wished to.
Our interns were so flexible and curious that they came out of the box to learn and gain experience in other fields of work as well. They not only learned but also gave us innovative ideas to improve and develop more.
It's already two months since they stepped in, and we could find some remarkable differences in Zluri's operations. After analyzing their performances, in the end, we would love to hire them as Zlurian to help them draw a path of success for themselves as well as Zluri.
We sent out an online survey to our interns to know a bit more about their experience in Zluri. This is what they have said.
