Titan was established in 1984 as a joint venture between the Tata Group and the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation. Today, it has become the fifth largest integrated own brand watch manufacturer with operations spread across the world. Getting a chance to do a summer internship at Titan was my dream which turned into reality.
What is the selection process for doing a summer internship at Titan?
The selection process for securing a summer internship at Titan was fairly simple and comprised of:
- CV Shortlisting
- Aptitude Test
- Psychometric Test
- Chairman’s Group Discussion
After being shortlisted, I appeared for the Aptitude Test. I had prepared for this round well and thus cracking it was not a problem. The follow up round was a Psychometric Test that tested a candidate’s mathematical and analytical abilities. The final round was the Chairman’s GD in which 12 individual cases were provided to discuss the business problems. Breezing through Titan’s selection process required thorough preparation, dedication and passion. I am glad that I could do that.
