My Talerang Journey
Talerang transformed me. Usually, people jump off a cliff and grow wings on the way down. But Talerang gave me the opportunity to grow my wings on the cliff.
I completed my Talerang summer internship at FoxyMoron, where the managers acted as my mentors and also gave me recognition for my ideas. Every week we had feedback sessions with the team leader and organizational partners, during which we could ask questions about the organization and industry. Work gave me the chance to meet new friends, where I realized the importance of making and sustaining connections at work.
I learnt how to stand up for my ideas and discover my own untested potential. One of my Facebook posts got 57,000 interactions and 54,000 likes, becoming one of Facebook’s top performing posts. My manager gave me the title of ‘Most hardworking Intern at work’ and offered me a full-time job after college.
There are many things I learned at my internship. I learnt the value of proofreading all client emails and completing my work by the deadline. I had weekly feedback meetings with my manager to discuss areas in which I could improve. I also learned it’s best to be over-prepared, especially being well-researched on upcoming trends related to my work as it is handy during brainstorming sessions.

Modeled on global best-practices
Talerang’s programs are different from regular trainings and courses due to the international approach to learning and the international curriculum. During the research at Harvard Business School, we interacted with Year UP, a U.S. based organization solving a similar problem. We further refined our learnings by visiting 100+ colleges and partnering with 250+ corporates who defined our training curriculum.
Our research shows that 6 key competencies - self-awareness, life vision, communication, working smart, first impressions and bridge to career help young talent succeed.
