What is Internshala Virtual Training Centre (VTC)?
Internshala Virtual Training Centre (VTC - http://vtc.internshala.com/) is a state of the art
online training portal which aims to deliver quality training on
industry relevant skills to students all over India at an affordable
cost. Think of it as Coursera but heavily customized and designed for Indian context.
Built on the idea that students coming out of our colleges today
lack the necessary practical skills that industry demands and hence,
suffer in their career. Current alternatives in form of brick and mortar
training centres are expensive, inaccessible to students in remote
areas, and the quality of the training is questionable. VTC aims to
disrupt this by making smart use of technology to deliver quality
education online where students can learn any real world skill even in
the remotest corner of the country as per a schedule that is convenient
Launched in summer 2013, VTC currently offers 3 trainings and the
user response has been overwhelmingly positive (70%+ students rate VTC
trainings as ‘Awesome’). We now intend to scale this to hundreds of
courses and millions of users over next 2-3 years.

domain) would be a plus. So would be prior experience in course content
creation and/or teaching new technologies to juniors
Proven track record of getting things done – a prior
start up stint (your own venture, as an employee or as an intern) would
be a HUGE plus. In absence of that, we would look for leadership
experiences that you have had during college.
Clean sense of design – you would need it both for the product design as well as for Marketing.
Internships that matter.At the core of the idea is the belief that internships, if managed well, can make a positive difference to the student, to the employer, and to the society at large. Hence, the ad-hoc culture surrounding internships in India should and would change. Internshala aims to be the...
