Rahul DhamejaQ: What is Placecom.org all about?
A: Placecom is basically a Full-Stack Remote Internship providing platform, which was launched by Wribhu Tyagi (Founder) during the COVID situation when students were not getting internships. Amidst this situation, it is not possible for the students to go out and do their internship. That is why we started this platform to provide remote internships to the students so that their internship period is not hindered. We tied up with various startups and companies to provide work-from-home internships.
Q: So are the internships HR related?
A: As of now, we are focusing mainly on Engineering and MBA internships or jobs, in all the domains for both the categories.
Q: You are an engineering graduate, then you did internships related to Digital Marketing. Now you are studying MBA and have come up with this platform. How come you have chosen a different platform altogether?
A: I did my Engineering in Electronics and Communication from 2014-18. In the second year of my engineering, I realised that this is not my thing. Before applying for admission into an MBA college, I tried my hands on our family business in 2018-19. After that, I joined SRCC for MBA in Marketing in 2019.
The switch from engineering to marketing was not a drastic change. Rather, it was a planned decision that I took. I was not into engineering, so I used that time to pursue the family business and I am certain that in the future, I will start something of my own. MBA will help me get a good corporate exposure and obviously, who doesn’t want to enjoy the campus life once again!
Q: How has Placecom helped students in their internships till now?
A: At Placecom, we have managed to provide internships to over 100 students in a very short span. Students, sometimes are not aware of the suitable internship opportunities available for them which creates kind of a gap. We at Placecom, had the sheer motive in our minds to bridge that gap as much as possible and bring all the possible internships/job opportunities to students so that they have ample options to apply to and no one gets left.
Q: What are your future plans pertaining to Placecom?
A: We have many services in the pipeline for the students. Some of the services such as The Interview Diary, One-to-One coaching, etc. have already been launched. So, let’s say, stay tuned and Thank You all for loving and supporting us so much. We will surely continue the good work!
