Our Intern Stories

A peek into their World of Wonder. The #SonyWOW internship is a world in itself where interns blend into Sony’s curiosity to dream, create and innovate with care, learning to bring reality closer to people.

“Sony as a company or brand needs no introduction. The kind of successful products and services it has given to the society is truly remarkable. My favourite part of interning at Sony would be, the people, my fellow interns ,my manager, the HR and how they have helped me in every step of my journey. All of us fellow interns shared a great camaraderie. Sony Research India gave me the freedom to create really powerful and engaging solutions and I knew that whatever we create will be used by millions of people. That was empowering! Sony Research India is the ideal place for people who have a passion for their work and the desire to make an impact—in their careers, in the community and on the world. If you thrive in environments of “deep thinking” and fast-paced entrepreneurial execution, then this is the place for you. I would seriously consider myself lucky if I would be able to work at Sony Research India for a long time.”

Starting from the Walkman to the industrial leading noise cancelling ear-buds, Sony has made its mark in the Audio industry. I was fascinated with the products that Sony produced. I was keenly interested to understand the engineering and research talent that works behind it from the very idea generation to the product launch stage. The #SonyWOW internship gave me that chance and I’m extremely glad for it!

Empowerment, equal opportunity, trust, collaboration, and mutual respect is the core culture of the Sony family.
