The start-up is offering quality work experience, industry exposure and an offsite opportunity to five best performing interns of its Summer Internship Programme
The Dorm Shop, an online platform that caters to college needs of students, opens applications for its Summer Internship Programme. This is an opportunity for students to get a first-hand experience of the operations of a start-up and learn about the sector. The internship also provides students a platform to interact with professionals from multiple fields through various seminars and sessions.
The students will become ambassadors of The Dorm Shop for their respective colleges and would be given to task to develop and roll-out a marketing campaign for the company (in their colleges). The winning campaign will be replicated across all partner institutions of the company in India. In addition to this, the interns will be part of weekly sessions at the company that will be curated by industry veterans from the fields of marketing and branding, which would help them understand the nitty-gritties of this sector.
Five top performing interns will work from a Villa in Goa along with other employees during the last phase of the programme. The best performing intern will also receive a full-time work opportunity with The Dorm Shop upon his/her graduation.
Speaking about the Summer Internship Programme, Jay Bagri, Founder, The Dorm Shop says, “Given the growth in the start-up ecosystem of India, many young graduates are aiming to pursue entrepreneurship straight out of college. The internship programme at The Dorm Shop is designed to ensure they are well equipped and aware of the industry. We have designed the programme in a way that students get a holistic view of the operations of a start-up.”
Post its launch in July 2015, The Dorm Shop has seen a steady increase in interest from the student community for its offerings. The company has a strong footing in colleges such as IIT Madras, Ferguson College Pune, Christ College Bangalore, SRCC Delhi, NIFT Kolkata and more with Campus Stores being built in Dayanand Sagar, Sinhgad Institutes, IIMT and 12 other colleges.
