Well, we’re super-excited for one thing. Guess what? We’re ready to hire our fourth batch of interns for Appointy.
We’re looking forward to having another team of passionate, hard-working and fun people onboard. When we started hiring for interns an year and a half back, we thought of it as an experiment. We had no idea what the response might be. We were amazed when over 300 students applied. After recruiting three batches, it has become quite clear that Bhopal has tremendous talent to offer.
So here we go again!
Why is applying for Appointy a good idea?
Appointy hands out pre-placement offers to select interns. The PPO offered to the last batch of interns had a CTC of upto INR 11 lacs for the first year, subsequently increasing on the basis of your performance. We’ve offered six and are willing to hand out more.
The ‘Oh-so-grand’ stipend:
To describe the thrill of getting your first paycheck is inexplicable. As far as the stipend is concerned, Appointy is a bag full of happy surprises. Apart from the fixed stipend that you get every month depending on the number of hours you’ve completed, there is also a possibility of scoring a surprise bonus, which is awarded to the interns who have been performing exceptionally well.
Awesome office culture:
Share any love for Air hockey or Pool? Or Foosball?
To relieve yourself or freshen up your mood, Appointy has Air Hockey at the new office! Just in case, you feel like you aren’t into Air Hockey, then a game of pool might just chase away your drudgery! And last but not the least, if nothing works, there is table tennis to the rescue!
Hot Chocolate, anyone?
So everyone knows how vending machines and coffee makers satisfy those needs and greeds but is there anyone who craves for hot chocolate? Having a soulful cup of hot chocolate sitting on a bean bag and working is ‘THE’ workplace we all dream about!
PS4 to relieve your stress.
So, you’ve got a deadline to meet in a few hours and your mind isn’t helping you at all! Appointy knows exactly what you need! A WWE wrestle mania with your colleague might help you relieve all the stress.
Imagine how cool it’d be if you could sit with all your friends and watch the season finale of Game of Thrones on a giant 150” Screen. It’d be legendary. And how does Appointy know about it?
Because it’s done here quite a lot! Welcome to your own ‘Office’ Theatre. Any movie. Anytime you want.
Here’s the thing. The fun at Appointy isn’t restricted to the office premises. Appointy likes to mix it up. Every weekend, Appointy plans a fun outing for its interns to dispense the stress and get to know each other better. These outings range from Bowling games and Go-karting challenges to a peaceful retreat in nature’s lap at some forest resort.
Why Code Studio?
First things first. We’re not a blue-chip company. That’s why we don’t ‘recruit’ interns via a conventional placement. We’re looking for great people who can share our passion for working, bond with us, and create something big together. These things aren’t just to attract you. This is actually what we look for in interns.
How to apply?
- Fill the form: because we don’t trust resumes.
- The interview: We’re crazy people and might like you solely on the basis of what food you like [just kidding, but things really go crazy in the interview]. We give weight to your personality and our intuition along with skills and experiences while choosing our interns.
- Now don’t sit back and wait for the results. Results are always announced at an uber-hip party.
The basic internship is of 2 months followed by an extension and PPO if selected. Below is the life cycle of an internship at Appointy.
- Initially, candidates will be selected for 2 months
You will be paid Rs 11,000 for 2 months subject to a minimum of 160 work hours. Appointy will try to identify your passion and try to push your limits during these 2 months. Everyone will get a certificate at the completion of our basic internship.
- Intense 4 months training
If you are selected to continue after 2 months, you will be paid according to the below table:
Stipend – Extended Interns
|Less than 40||₹ 0.00|
|Between 40 and 80||₹ ((working hours)/80) * 11,000|
- PPO Offer
One fine day, you may get a PPO offer and you would have to continue the internship (80 hours per month minimum) till your joining date. This condition would be exempted during exams. All other candidates will continue to get mentorship and will always have a chance to get a PPO offer before college.
We’re looking for two types of interns: Tech & Non-tech.
It sounds a little vague but here’s the logic: We’re not specifically looking for a UI/UX designer or a Social media marketing intern. We’re looking to build an extraordinary team of interns. We give a chance to our interns to experiment with various types of work until they find “the one” thing they love doing.
Job description: We’re a growing company. New opportunities can sprout up literally at any time of the day. So a bullet-list of what you’ll be doing can’t work for us. But just to give you an idea of what you’ll likely be doing, here’s a list of things our previous interns have worked on:
- Enterprise sales
- Training support
- Landing pages for the website
- Data analytics
- Inbound marketing
- Offline marketing
- Ebooks & whitepapers
- UI/UX developer
- Appointy back-end developer (Server management, .NET Core, SQL, API management, network security)
- Front end developer (Angular 2, Redux, RxJS, React.JS)
- Mobile App development (Xamarin, iOS, Android)
What are you likely to learn?
You’ll learn a little bit of everything; from writing a code to writing a blog, and you’ll learn it from the coolest people in town!
- Objective setting
- Planning your tasks
- Getting things done
- Self- learning
Got some questions on your mind?
Does it matter to us if you’ve ‘not-so-impressive’ academic scores?
We believe grades don’t define your intelligence. Sachin Tendulkar never had a good academic record, but is an idol for everyone of us. So, as long as you are good at what you do, you’re in.
Can non-CSE branch students apply too?
It doesn’t matter what stream you are from. We sort people on the basis of their skills and potential and not by the stream they chose. Our internship programme might be named Code Studio but we’re looking for tech as well as non tech interns.
What you shouldn’t be expecting from us?
Appointy is not a training program. You’ll experience how working at a startup feels like, but you won’t be spoon-fed. You are supposed to find your domain and contribute by being creative. You will learn to ideate, plan and execute things.
So, we invite students from colleges across Bhopal, who share the same belief and are willing to work and learn with us.
Be ready and mark your calendars.
Code Studio 4 is going live on 20th Feb 2017.
