This Sleep Internship Is the Definition of a Dream Job — All You Have to Do Is Get 8 Hours Per Night (Video)
Would you be a good fit?
A sleep solutions company is looking for the perfect candidate to literally do their job in their sleep.
Wakefit — a Bangalore-based company that also sells mattresses and pillows — is hiring a “Sleep Intern” to participate in the company’s study of sleep patterns and come up with creative products and solutions to help people sleep better.
For anyone who loves to sleep, this is truly the ultimate dream job (in a way, literally). The Sleep Intern’s job is quite simple: This person is able to practically fall asleep anywhere and can track their sleep patterns for research purposes. And, they’ll get paid for it too.
The ideal candidate is someone with a college degree in any field (a “history of falling asleep during class will be counted as relevant experience,” according to the job description), can commit to staying in bed to sleep for at least eight hours, can fall asleep within 10 to 20 minutes (without the use of sleep aids, presumably), and has the knowledge to record and analyze their personal sleeping patterns.
The company will provide a mattress and fitness tracker to the candidate –– so you don’t already have to have a FitBit ready to go before you apply.
The candidate seemingly will have a fairly strict routine to stick to, including guidelines about drinking caffeinated beverages as well as restricted screen time (including social media, TV, and computers). People who love to binge-watch shows before bed, drink coffee, stay out late, or snore are at a disadvantage, according to the job description.
In addition, the company is looking for someone who is fairly inactive on social media, has knowledge of meditative practices and stress management, and “in-depth knowledge on the lyrics and tunes of lullabies.”
Even though a lot of the sleep-deprived masses may be interested in this internship, it will sadly only go to the best sleepers out there.
As for compensation, Wakefit says on its listing that it will be paying their Sleep Intern 1 lakh, which is 100,000 rupees, or about $1,400 USD.
The job lasts for about nine hours per night for 100 nights (weekends included). Luckily, all of the work is required to be done in the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas (or whatever you sleep in).
Applications are currently open. In order to apply, visit the application website and tell Wakefit why you’re the best sleeper for the job.
