What made you apply for the Infosys InStep Summer Internship Programme?

I wanted to gain practical experience in a big company, improve my skills and boost my resume. Apart from that, I also wanted to explore a new culture and meet new people.

In short – what was your internship about?

My project was to develop a program that automatically extracts data from tables in PDFs of invoice documents.

Were you able to put your academic knowledge and skills into practice?

Yes. I had the opportunity to apply my knowledge of software engineering and artificial intelligence to contribute to something that should be used every day.

What more did the Internship Programme bring you (on personal and professional level)?

This was my first (definitely not the last) time in India. I was able to meet a completely new culture and visit outstanding places. On the professional level, I was able to improve my coding skills and learn new technologies, but also to practice presenting and communicating the results out. I connected with many interesting people from all over the world.
Also, the Indian food is great. Be warned though, not everyone shared my opinion. J

Would you recommend other students to apply for this programme?

Absolutely. The internship is maximally organized by the InStep team. They make sure that you benefit from it in every way. All you need to do is work and enjoy.
