OnePlus has announced its first Student Ambassador Program in India. The aim of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to intern and learn at the company’s global offices. The ones selected for the program will get to be a part of, and contribute to the company’s live projects. They will also be provided with resources so that they can support local initiatives in their respective institutions. “It is an excellent opportunity for young students to apply the classroom fundamentals to address real-world challenges, bring disruptive ideas to fruition and directly work with one of the world’s fastest growing and most engaging smartphone brands,” says OnePlus.
Selected students will receive a monthly stipend, get hands-on experience with the latest OnePlus products. All ambassadors will be granted a certificate upon completion of the program, but some can land an opportunity to intern with the company’s global offices. OnePlus says that the ambassadors will be selected on several factors that include “ambition displayed, personal values, creativity, understanding of technology, passion for marketing, outgoing personality, leadership qualities and their ‘Never Settle’ attitude.” Also, the company states that the program is for giving back to its consumers as 64% of their users in India are college graduates and 30% are between the ages of 18 and 24 years.
The Campus Connect program will commence on September 1, 2018 and selected students will get an opportunity to be “OnePlus community specialists, brand evangelists and technology experts” in their institutions. “At OnePlus, our focus is on actively engaging with our community in meaningful ways. With millions of student fans in India, we are proud to introduce an exclusive program to nurture young talent, improve their OnePlus experience and give them an opportunity to be a part of our exciting journey,” said Vikas Agarwal, General Manager, OnePlus India.
