Story in Neha’s own words
Writing has always been a passion for me. So when the call for content writers for IEEE came up, I thought of taking my passion into a professional level. And what followed was a series of interviews for filtering the finest candidates. I gave my name for volunteering as an intern for content writing for IEEE Kerala section. I filled the form based on my experience in the field of writing contents. After my application was selected, I was called for the interview, where I was interviewed by the Vice-Chair of Young Professionals Kerala Section Mr Neeraj and the Joint Secretary Ms Pooja. The interview was a wonderful experience for me. I was asked about IEEE and had to do a PPDT (Picture Perception and Discussion Test) . I guess, they liked my response and hence I was shortlisted. After a meeting with the Chairperson of the Kerala Section, I was officially declared selected to the team, along with three others from various institutions from all over Kerala. We are to work together as a team. We have to write content for electronic mails and formal letters for the IEEE, we have to write for various societies and for others under IEEE. It’s a great opportunity as it helps me explore and expand my vocabulary and also gives me the much needed exposure to the outside world and to issues in dealing with people’s need.
