Initium: The Internship Expo caters to both undergraduate and postgraduate students across all disciplines, ranging from Business Development to Mass Communication and Videography. In the previous editions, Initium hosted companies like PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), OYO, Swiggy, Mad Over Marketing, Kantar, Elegant Steel. Apart from valuable insights, Initium also promises non-academic credits for participants.

“Students get an opportunity to understand and choose internships wisely. After the application and selection process, candidates will have to appear for a virtual interview. The companies also get a chance to know their applicants better through the interview round. It is a convenient process for companies to hire skilled Xaverians. We have received an overwhelming response from students for more than 60 companies offering various internship roles,” said Utkarsh Sureka, a second-year BCom student, who is a senior associate, PR and operations, Entrepreneurship Development Cell.
