The idea behind this interview is to make sure that the selected candidates are as passionate about sleep as we are, and have the right skills to sleep optimally for nine hours a night for 100 nights and improve their sleep health. Honestly, the overwhelming response to our sleep internship programme was a pleasant surprise. We received applications from 30 countries and close to 1,500 candidates sent us video resumes in the second round. The conversations have been truly engaging and enlightening. As a sleep solutions company, our motto is to inspire people to sleep better,” said Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, co-founder, Wakefit.co.
