He received a response from the Head of Design at CRED after many cheered for him to get a job at the company.
It's a bit difficult to stand out in today's time when so many candidates apply for an internship or a job. Many have the required skills and ideas however, only a few can implement them. Karthig Saravanan is one of the most talented candidates without a doubt. He made a quirky commercial for CRED, a company he wanted to intern with and the video is sure to leave you awestruck with his talent. Saravanan posted the advertisement on his LinkedIn page. It starts with the caption, "Hello. This is Karthig. I want to intern at CRED. So I made a commercial." It goes on to show the advantages of using CRED, like easy payments, timely reminders and rewards like CRED coins and discounts. It ends with CRED's logo and in-lay text, "Full-time would be great." The background music is catchy and the graphics are just perfect.

Talking about internships, in another story, to encourage vaccination, the White House collaborated with comedian Benny Drama in 2021. He features in a video as a White House intern, Kooper, which went viral on Instagram. It shows him as an assistant to former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Kooper can be seen wearing a short suit and walking around the White House doing different tasks.
At one point in the video, he tells Psaki that he has booked a nailed appointment for her and she says, "I didn't tell you to do that." To which Kooper responds, "It's called initiative." At another point, he can be seen texting, as Psaki notes, "We've come a long way in our fight against this virus. We've vaccinated 160 million Americans." Paski asks him if he's getting it all down, and he points to his head and says, "Don't worry, Queen, it's all in here." He can also be seen telling someone on the phone that “We need to get shots in the arms of every single American.” Benny captioned the video, "Let’s keep ourselves, families and communities safe, WE DID IT, JOE! And thank you to Jen Psaki for being the best girl boss in the world. ❤️"
