Intern at India’s most desirable companies with Upraised
New Delhi: Upraised, an edtech startup focused on upskilling tech professionals, is now welcoming students from Engineering, MBA, Design & Arts and Commerce colleges looking for internship placements. Upraised today announced the launch of ‘Embark Internship Programme 2021’ with a primary goal of helping students land internship opportunities based on skills and interests rather than their graduate degree.
During Embark Internship Programme 2020 — 11,500 students were assessed from 50+ Tier 1 and 2 colleges of India; of which Upraised selected top 40 students and placed them as Product Management interns at leading tech companies such as: RazorPay, Mobile Premier League, MXPlayer, Treebo, 1MG etc.
In its second year, the Embark Internship Programme 2021 is bigger and bolder. It aims to make internships accessible to students irrespective of their college, their graduate degree or the city they live in. Students will be able to do internships across 5 high-impact and well-paying career tracks such as (i) Product & Growth, (ii) Design, (iii) People Operations, (iv) Business Operations, and (v) Analytics.
Talking about the Embark 2021 programme, Mona Gandhi, Founder – Upraised said: “High growth companies want to be the first to discover and hire young exceptional talent. On the other hand, aspiring students are eager to land internships at these companies to increase their chances of converting into full time job offers. It’s a win-win for both companies and candidates. They get to work with each other before making a longer term commitment. Internships also enable students to try multiple career tracks. With Embark, Upraised ensures a 100% guaranteed internship that upskills these students and also gives them the opportunity to find their dream job.”
Smayan Das, a B.Tech + M.Tech from IIT Kharagpur student who got placed as an intern at MPL with Upraised, last year said, “Apart from the extensive modules that impart real world knowledge and the professional network we get access to, the best thing is how Upraised entirely handles the legwork, taking care of correspondence with companies, shortlisting, interview schedules, etc. and all we do is learn the modules and practice mock interviews. Heartfelt Kudos to Upraised for kickstarting so many careers in product management.”
To get this opportunity with Embark, students will have to pass ESAT [Embark Skills Assessment Test]. Once they are selected, each of them will go through a 6-week training program and land an internship with guaranteed stipend with an option of converting to PPO. Not only does the student get to become a part of an exclusive club, but also gain an immersive learning experience from industry experts. The internship programme is free for students and registrations will continue till 15 August 2021. Students enrolled in their final year (graduating in 2022) or pre-final year (graduating in 2023) in any undergraduate or postgraduate program can register on Upraised’s website.
Every year, select candidates from across the country make it to Upraised’s Embark programme, after passing three rounds of selections. This year, Upraised is back to democratize opportunities for students from any college in India. The exams will be scheduled for late September, and after finalizing a list of students who make it through, they will be rewarded internships between late December – early January 2022.
