Bengaluru Startup Offering Sleep Internship!
WakeFit is a startup from Bengaluru, which sells mattresses and beds, designed to help consumers sleep better.
They have rolled out a unique internship position, wherein the interns will be asked to sleep non-stop for 9 hours, and for 100 days.
Rs 1 lakh will be paid to the selected intern, whose only task and KPI would be sleep.
Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, director and co-founder of Wakefit.co said, “… The Sleep Internship initiative aims to bring back the focus on sleep health by celebrating and applauding people who obsess about sleeping well”
The intern can work in a regular job in the day, and then join the internship at night, and well, sleep.
A mattress and a fitness tracker will be provided to the interns as well.
But, what is the catch here?
Sleep Internship: You Should Have These Skills
This unique internship needs people, who can sleep anytime, anywhere: Be it bus stand, railway station or cinema halls.
The deserving candidate will be the one, who has a notorious history of sleeping in the class and the one who is slow-paced, and can teach others how to sleep better, and how to sleep more.
The job description says: “Demonstrated affinity to cosy environments, napping, lazing and lounging will be a bonus.”
At the same time, the candidates who love to work and be active in the night will have disadvantage, as the interns are required to sleep in the night.
As per the job description, anyone who can be fast asleep within 10-15 minutes of hitting the bed and pillow, would be the ideal candidate for this interesting internship.
Is it a marketing gimmick, or a seriously sleepy internship?
