Flipkart, India’s homegrown e-commerce marketplace, has introduced an internship program for undergraduate students from tier-II cities and beyond to offer an opportunity to work in its state-of-the-art supply chain ahead of the festive season and the Big Billion Days. This 45-day paid ‘Launchpad’ Internship Programme is aimed at helping students gain critical skills in supply chain management and create an ecosystem of trained professionals for the e-commerce industry.
While the programme was launched last year, over 2,000 students participated in the internship programme from across India during the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale.
Launchpad is designed to introduce students to work in Flipkart’s supply chain and help them understand the processes that form the backbone of e-commerce. The program has been designed to shape India’s future workforce in various essential supply chain roles, which will help in creating an ecosystem of well-qualified, well-trained, and skilled professionals in the long run. Flipkart is working with educational institutes across 21 locations including Binola (Haryana), Bhiwandi (Maharashtra), Uluberia and Dankuni (West Bengal) and Malur (Karnataka), Medchal (Telangana) and many more to identify meritorious students and engage the selected students at its fulfilment centres. The internship program rolled out during the upcoming festive season and in the run up to Flipkart’s The Big Billion Days will offer the students an insight into the heightened scale of e-commerce operations during the festive season.
