Last year too Flipkart had offered a similar opportunity. This year the payment can be as high as Rs. 600 per-day.
E-commerce giant Flipkart announced its paid internship programme ‘Launchpad’ for undergraduate students from tier-II cities and beyond. The internship will offer students an opportunity to work in the company's supply chain division during the festive season and the Big Billion Days sale.
The company said that the 45-day internship is aimed at helping students gain critical skills in supply chain management and create an ecosystem of trained professionals for the e-commerce industry. "We are confident of providing an engaging and immersive working experience to our interns during the upcoming festive season, which will help generate more interest towards the supply chain," said Amitesh Jha, Senior Vice-President, Flipkart.
This year, students getting to intern with Flipkart under ‘Launchpad’ will be paid around Rs 500 per day and depending on the local labour laws of various states it can be as high as Rs 600 per day.
Over 2,000 students participated in the internship programme last year.

Upon joining, students will be trained in various aspects of supply chain management while following strict practices that priorities their health and safety.

The exposure offered through this internship program, according to Flipkart, will help students build long-term resiliency and agility in their operations while upskilling them in this fast-changing external scenario.
