Dikshita Basu’s LinkedIn profile states that she is a final year student at Sathyabama University of Tamil Nadu and a product designer. The student has several internships in the field to support her claim of creative ability.

However, his Valentine’s Day proposal for Zomato caught the eye of the company’s CEO, Rahul Ganjoo, and Zomato’s head of design, Vijay Verma.

Basu created a presentation and tagged Zomato in it while posting it on LinkedIn.

“This Valentine’s Day, I want to ask Zomato out for an internship. So to apply…I thought I’d organize something worthwhile, his post read.

The computer science student has a keen interest in product design and her presentation suggested changes to Zomato’s food delivery app. She listed alternatives to improve the user experience of the app.

Basu’s “Special Valentine’s Day Internship Proposal” suggested repositioning the “Drafts” folder or improving user flow when uploading images.

Basu also suggested that the 15-second food supply videos, also known as “Zomato Zing”, can be used to place orders or reserve a table if they attract customer attention and interest. .

Basu’s adorable illustrations will also catch the viewer’s attention.

The unique internship proposal has gone viral on social media with nearly 8,000 likes and over 400 comments since it was shared this morning.

Food Delivery CEO Rahul Ganjoo was also seen responding to the proposal. Ganjoo promised to contact her again shortly.

“Appreciate the effort Dikshita Basu! We will contact you shortly,” he wrote in the comments section.

Others were seen promising to feed their Biriyani office team ordered through Zomato, if she lands the internship.

Vijay Verma, head of design for Zomato, also commented on his post with, “Great job.”

This isn’t the first time an internship application with a difference has gone viral online. Last year, a 21-year-old man from Mumbai landed his dream internship at CRED, thanks to the 3D video he applied to the company with.
