Intern or GuestPost

Interns are integral part of Conserve. Every year Conserve welcomes interns from all over the world. It’s always been an extraordinary experience for both Conserve & Interns.

This page is intended to be a starting point for our new interns.  All the questions on this page were raised by prospective interns and all the answers were of Conserve.

We keep updating this page as and when we have new questions. Watch out!

Prospective Intern – How do you assign and monitor task for interns?

Conserve –Weekly task list and heads-up are simple system

Weekly task list

Every week before Monday 8 a.m., intern will send the update in the below format to the staff supervising him / her.


Task list for week of 20 January 2014

  • Complete ABC
  • Do XYZ
  • Work on this, that etc 

Previous week (13 January 2014) task completion update

Previous week (13 January 2014) task  
Complete ABC Completed
Do XYZ Completed
Work on this, that etc Incomplete – Write why did not complete

Simply put – Completed is in GREEN. Eventually, intern is expected to complete. But due to some acceptable reason, if he/she cannot complete, then they can, write Incomplete in RED along with reason.

Heads-up list

This is just to make everyone’s job easier. On Sunday or so, if the intern can get all their thoughts together and send an email to their supervisor with all their Questions on the upcoming week task, then they will be answered sooner.

Otherwise, sometimes it takes time to get answer. This heads-up will help intern to continue the task and not lag behind.
