Internship Blues.......

My first day at internship wasnt very pleasant, but by God's grace I was a lot better at the end of the day. The good thing was even though circumstances were against me, He was with me, I dint loose my cool even once and everyone I met were good to me by God's grace.

I had 2 offers for internship and it so happened that all two wouldnt give me the required information.In addition to working for them, I am supposed to generate a report about the organisation by the end of the month, and all three wouldnt disclose their financial statements

I found this out around 12:00 noon from both the firms. The HR executive at the first company was a young pretty lady probably in her late 20's she me all other information other than Financial statements.

So I went to this other firm and the Vice-President HR too was kind he too obliged to help me and promised me even the audited financial statements.I was quite happy and called up my guide at college.To my surprise he wasnt happy, he said the second firm has just 100 coders working with then and its not a large company.

So finally by 3:00 pm I got permission at the State Bank of Travancore , the largest nationalised bank in my State.I badly wanted to work this month with a software firm as that was my area of interest.I firmly believe that God has better plans for me.Mabbe HE wanted me to get acquaited with some financial institution too after all I'm doin an MBA.

After which I came home and we practised for sunday's worship service at youth fellowship at my home.and now here I am tired and exhaused but thankful to God.I called my Dad almost 12 times today.He was very supportive everytime I had trouble today.I thank God for the wonderful gift my Dad is to me.

I actully started reading that book thinking it would help me at my intership,but now I find it intersting and I guess I'd take a paper on Software project management in the last semester.

I just want to share this verse with you:

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end" Ecclesiastics 3:11

Thanks to all my xanga buddies for keeping me in prayer and for your wishes they mean a lot to me.Thank you Lord for making me tough and tired but not disheartened. Praise you Lord for the good internship you've given me.Jesus you are awesome.
