Keeping the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in mind, the Trinamool Congress has decided to recruit two interns from the Indian Institute of Management in Kolkata to help the party devise and execute effective communication strategies.
Nine final-year management students at the premier B-school have already applied for the internship which will begin from March, TMC spokesperson Derek O'Brien said.
"We are overwhelmed with the response. Nine have applied already, although we can accommodate only two. We will shortlist some of them based on their CV and then call them for an interview," Derek, the Rajya Sabha MP who is also a quizmaster, said.
During the interview the party would test the candidate's communication skills and understanding of Indian politics.
The selected interns would work at the TMC headquarters with the party's communication team and All India Trinamool Congress Yuva president Abhishek Banerjee. Derek said they would be allotted assignments like designing and executing the party's communication strategies, sharpening social media skills, and handling logistics, among others.
The last date for submitting the application is January 31. During the Assembly polls In 2011, TMC had similarly hired two interns - Hariharan Sriram and Mansha Tandon.
