About the company

OysterConnect.com is India's Biggest Platform for Live Projects & Virtual Internships. We partner with various well known Companies and Brands to carry out large scale Corporate Projects. These projects are converted into Live Project & Virtual Internship Opportunities for thousands of students from all major Management & Undergraduate Programs across India. During the Internship Program, selected students will get to work on one or more of our Client Partner(s) requirements depending on location and other priorities. Currently we are working with Client Partners such as TripAdvisor, Shiksha.com, ClearTax & Adventure Nation etc

Trip Advisor, World's Largest Travel Site, has partnered with OysterConnect.com to launch a nationwide Hotels & Restaurant Re-Branding Initiative. OysterConnect.com will, therefore, be running this project on behalf of TripAdvisor, whose branded sites make up the largest travel community in the world, reaching 315 million unique monthly visitors, and more than 200 million reviews and opinions covering more than 4.4 million accommodations, restaurants and attractions.

Internship Objective
TripAdvisor has partnered with OysterConnect.com to carry out their annual co-branding program with their 30,000+ Restaurant and Hotel partners. This means that our interns will visit these Restaurants/Hotels and educate them about TripAdvisor and create on-site visibility by way of "Review us on Trip Advisor" stickers.

Project Steps

  • You must first read and understand all project related documents such as Training Guidelines, Training Videos, FAQs to begin the process. This is extremely crucial for a smooth experience later.
  • You will be given a list of Hotels / Restaurants that are located in your city. Go through this list and contact the concerned person (via Call) to discuss the following:
    1. Tell them about their current Ratings & Reviews on TripAdvisor.
    2. Tell them that the next step in their engagement with TripAdvisor is to showcase TripAdvisor's Sticker on their Hotel's / Restaurants's Front door, Reception Desk, or any other place that gets maximum eyeballs from visitors.
    3. Once convinced, schedule a date & time when you can go to the Hotel / Restaurant to do the Stickering
  • On the scheduled date & time,
    1. Meet the Hotel / Restaurant Manager and get an update on where the Stickering is to be done
    2. Once the stickering is done, you are expected to take pictures of the Hotel / Restaurant or Area of the Hotel / Restaurant where the Sticker has been pasted (Refer to Stickering Video)
    3. Upload the Pictures & Hotel / Restaurant Details from the Hotel's location onto an App which TripAdvisor will provide. (The project manager will train you on how to use the App before the Internship starts)
  • Similarly, visit and complete the Stickering for 110 such Hotels / Restaurants in the City allocated to you. You should try stickering at least 130 Hotels / Restaurants, so that even if some are Rejected by the TripAdvisor Team, at least 110 out of them will come out as "Approved" and your target will be completed.
  • Note: The TripAdvisor Stickers that will be provided to you by the Project Manager is for your use during the internship period only. Any leftover stickers remaining with you after completion of the Internship targets or in case you are dropping out from the Internship, need to be returned to the Project manager within 1 week of your exit from the Internship.
