The interns will be expected to sleep on the company-provided mattress for 9 hours for 100 days and 7 nights a week at home itself
Wakefit Innovations Pvt Ltd, a Bengaluru-based startup, is offering an incredible Rs1 lakh for interns to sleep for 9 hours for 100 days!
The company has come up with the "sleep internship" in order to monitor people's sleeping patterns. The dress code for the job is "pajamas", reports India Today mentioning the company website.
The sleep internship is an attempt to bring back focus on sleeping health and "is another step towards making sleep an integral part of maintaining work-life balance in our lives" Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, the director and co-founder of Wakefit, told Business Insider.
The interns will be expected to sleep on the company-provided mattress for 9 hours for 100 days and 7 nights a week at home itself.
The job description on their website says, "Just sleep. For as long as you can, as deep as you can, and as competitively as you can. You just rest. Leave the rest to us."
Using a sleep tracker before and after using the mattress, interns' sleeping pattern will be monitored.
There is just one main demand that the interns will not be allowed to use laptop during their 'work' hours.
The selected intern will get Rs1 lakh at the end of 100 days on completing the task properly.
The only skill you need for the internship is, "A fanatical passion for sleep and an innate ability to fall asleep at the slightest given opportunity," read the company website.
The company also asks for another 'skill' which is, "An unmatched zeal for breaking your own sleep records, a mastery over this fine art, and of course, your favourite pajamas!"
