Verité is a highly dynamic environment: working closely with colleagues in the politics research team, I learned about Sri Lanka’s parliamentary dynamics, security structure and media landscape, among other issues, from a privileged angle. The time at Verité has truly strengthened my passion for international affairs.

Working at Verité Research provided me with the ideal balance of stimulating research and learning the ropes of the work environment. As an intern, I greatly appreciated the trust placed in me, the interest shown in mentoring me and the extremely knowledgeable, yet approachable people I had the opportunity to interact with.

Working for Verité Research was one of the most intellectually growing experiences in my professional career. The Verité cohort provide the space for people from all different backgrounds to learn and share their ideas in order to produce informed research. I learned so much from their commitment to collaboration, collegial spirit and wickedly smart team members.

My internship at Verité Research gave me a rich experience from many aspects. It let me accumulate work experience which required great precision and responsible attitude. It also allowed me to get insight operation of the institute, and take part in all kind of events: meetings, presentations and team building day. Colleagues at VR were keen to introduce me to their country and learn about their culture.

LAURA ÉRSEK | STUDENTECONOMICS, UNIVERSITY OF SURREY, UK

I interned with the politics research team at Verité during the summer of 2017. Over the course of my internship I had the opportunity to assist the team on a number of primary and secondary research projects, drafted research briefs on the findings of said projects, gained insight into the methodology behind 'The Media Analysis', and carried out data analysis for Manthri.lk. All in all, the internship was a truly rewarding experience.

Verité helped me discover my strengths and weaknesses, and this is one of the reasons that I still maintain a working relationship with the organisation. The professionalism and work ethic I learnt during my time there will carry me forward in any career path I choose.
