Krystelle: The job description of the Digital Marketing Internship was exactly in line with the role I was looking for and most importantly, working for Sony Research India seemed like a great opportunity because of a startup sized organization backed by the Sony brand and culture.
Saumya: The work at Sony Research India aligned with my career goals. I always wanted to work in speech domain, and it doesn’t get better than Sony.
Krystelle: Initially, I was hired for an internship for a duration of 6 months. In terms of my responsibilities, I was always given creative freedom to speak my mind. Sony Research India is a data driven company, and if I back my work with data and results, every suggestion is always given due consideration. This is what I loved the most about interning here.
Saumya: By the time I graduated, I had already completed interning at Sony for 9 months. Being able to deliver two fully functional microservices for ongoing projects I was asked to step with a Research consultant position. My work on voice activity detection and speaker diarisation, along with my contribution in other teams made my conversion from an intern to member go smoothly.
Krystelle: Sony Research India is a great place to work in terms of exposure, learning experience, work culture and great peers. Here you will receive various training and development opportunities to be better at your job and upskill for your own benefit. Working at Sony is truly a great career opportunity.
Saumya: A lot of students have asked me for referrals for opportunities at Sony and my observation is that most of them did not have prior research experience. My advice to freshers would be to get involved in more research groups in your college and get as much research experience as you can as it will help your application at Sony Research India stand out.
