Bulls & Bulls - Synopsis


This report encompasses my internship experience in Bulls & Bulls and the task I performed in my six weeks tenure. It is indeed a great pride for me interning in the largest Financial Distribution Company of Pakistan. This was my third internship and I have no hesitation to say that I enjoyed it the most. Not because of HR people will read this report but because I learned a lot supplement to what I learned in the University. Bulls & Bulls incorporated as a Private Limited Company in March 2008 and embarked on a revolutionary crusade to transform the financial industry. Bulls & Bulls has distinctive philosophy which encourages all income level families about Wealth Management, to boost their confidence to invest in their familys future.

My internship, which is the theme of this report, was of 4 months, started from September 01, 2011 and ended on December 01, 2011. During these six weeks internship tenure I was placed in different departments thus was allowed to get the exposure of different departments and their working. The peculiar thing about this internship was I got the taste of Insurance, investment, Mutual Funds just by interning in Bulls & Bulls. This specialty that Bulls & Bulls posses cant be found anywhere else. Because of this diversification, I got the ample opportunity to grasp all the concepts and issues related to marketing. No matter in which field I get the job, this internship will eventually help in making task easier and adjusting in

the office environment. Bulls & Bulls has acclimatized me with the various marketing related issues that I believe wont be going to waste. In all, I was rotated in following five departments. Marketing Department Human Resource Department Sales Department Call Center Operations Department

The maximum time that I spent was in Marketing Department being the core department. Without getting biased or prejudiced, this stay in Marketing Department is the most favorite and will remember in coming years. Not only I learned lots of things, which not even were taught in classrooms but also developed a friendly relationship with all the employees of this department right from the head of the department to the messenger. All the employees rendered their support and tried to transfer as much knowledge as they could, which needs to be appreciated. Employees of other departments also remained helpful to me but Marketing Department I liked the most. If someone asks, in which department I would like to work? My prompt reply would be, in Marketing Department. Bulls & Bulls is still growing and more new departments are to open up in coming years. But what has been achieved until now is something found rarely in the history of business and insurance. An organization that started with a lot of problems but managed to tackle all the problems faced. Due to the hard work of the owner and the dedicated employees the company managed to become one of the largest financial product distributor and solution providers in the country. Bulls & Bulls is the only company which provides solution to all financial problems under one roof. This is Bulls & Bulls Empowering You To Decide.

There is always a room for continuous development. One shouldnt rely on what has been achieved. Rather he should strive for more and more in search of better opportunities and ways through which he can get optimum benefit. People resist change but when they avail the bounties of the change, they start acknowledging it. Same is the case in organizations. Employees resist change in the structural or managerial setup for their own reasons. Management shouldnt get itchy about it. If it feels that the change is vital and will going to work for the betterment of the organization, it should go for it.

Recommendations
Bulls & Bulls is emerging as a dynamic and a financial might. The environment is quite soothing and pleasant. I never thought for a second that I am working in a local organization. Was proud enough to wear Bulls & Bulls card and after completing my internship have a certain sense of achievement and satisfaction that I have learnt something that would be helpful in future. I have worked out some recommendations that might be helpful in adding up the positive features and eliminating the weaknesses of Bulls & Bulls. Consider them as my humble contribution for the betterment of Bulls & Bulls. Recommendations are:

Bulls & Bulls is a new organization yet it has grown very quickly. To further enhance the company should advertise their company more. They have a lack of identity which might hinder in getting the targets. In order to tackle this situation the company must take some steps to market their organization and make it familiar to people. The company should higher affective call center agents who have prior experience in the same field. The company can also advertise itself by using the internet, although they have a website but they have to make their website more attractive by placing different advertisements related to the products company sells and updates of its different ventures.

Conclusion
As I mentioned earlier, this report is based on my internship experience at Bulls & Bulls. This six weeks internship, I am sure will definitely help in building my professional career. Other than it, I have done two more internships, one at Askari Commercial Bank and the other one at National Logistic Cell. The learning that I got and in this internship was much advanced and focused to my qualification. The basic purpose for doing internships is to give students chance to apply their classrooms learning in a practical environment and to make them aware of the office environment. So that they dont face any difficulty in getting themselves adjusted after their education in their respective jobs. My purpose too was the same. But as I have done two internships, adjustment to the office environment wasnt any problem. My sole purpose was to get myself adhere to the actual task performed by the managers. I didnt want to do filing or photocopying or just data punching, as done by internees in other organizations or what my classmates have been doing in their internships. Luckily, this time I didnt have to do exclusive internees task most of the time. This gave me ample time to learn new things like designing marketing promotions for the company. All these things, I was doing for the first time and was very much excited. My eagerness and sincerity to learn new things made my mentors keener to teach me the various things and impart new knowledge in a general perspective. Sometimes, you cant learn things on your own

INTERNSHIP REPORT

nor the other person can stuff the things into ones mind if he/she is not eager to learn. I was a bit lucky that things had gone the way I wanted to. Also, my mentors that I got were simply superb. Its hard to find, people like these buried under the workload and teaching someone unconditionally, knowing that they wont get any money. So above all I was very much that I got mentors like Mr. Muhammad Adil Ansari and Mr. Atif Fayyaz. Besides teaching me about the Marketing Strategies, they taught me some other relevant topics that one way or the other may affect the companys image. The other good thing about Bulls & Bulls being multidimensional, I got the chance to intern in various fields, just staying under one roof. I didnt have to go to an investment companies to know about investments, I didnt have to go to an stock exchange to know about the mutual funds. All I learnt by staying at Bulls & Bulls. For a Marketing student like me working at Bulls & Bulls was a great experience.
