Bengaluru: Ever heard of a job that pays to sleep? We bet you have, after Bengaluru-based sleep and home solutions company, Wakefit.co, created a viral sensation with its ‘sleep internship’ initiative in 2020.
A year later, the world has faced a pandemic, and sleep has somehow taken a backseat again amidst the stress, health risks, and career turbulences. Wakefit.co is here to bring the focus back on sleep and make sleeping glamorous again.
The D2C sleep and home solutions brand is back with its Sleep Internship program and Season 2 promises to be bigger and better than its hugely popular maiden season. With 1.75 lakh applications in the first season, the Wakefit Sleep Internship created waves across the globe and received interest from over 30 countries.
Applicants shared their love for sleep through videos, text messages, customized songs, dance routines, and poems, as they sought to land their #DreamJob. Getting paid Rs 1 lakh to sleep was simply an add-on, most applicants gushed.
This year, close to 80,000 applicants have already thrown in their hats to compete this year and be a Sleep Intern.
