A month at Coke. School of Inspired Leadership’s internship 

This program has helped us a lot in understanding the

corporate world in a much deeper sense. This college will also make sure there is value add

in every learning given to us. The School of Inspired Leadership focuses widely on building

competent leaders rather than just managers. SOIL’s five value “pillars” make it special and

students get a deeper insight about the ethics, sustainability, compassion, diversity and

mindfulness. Even at my internship these values played a vital role. Today a good value

system has become the most integral part of any organization. The overall mission of the

company is to refresh the world, to inspire moments of optimization and to create value

which makes a difference. In business scenario, there exists no or very little community.

With the increase in globalization and removal of communication barriers by use of

technology, people have started interacting globally. E-Commerce is one such medium to

have a global interaction. Students at SOIL get a chance to work in these global companies

and best performers are rewarded with pre-placement offers as well. It helps us to work

closely in the industry by providing a valuable experience to work, better understanding of

the work culture and higher impactful learning. 

The previous one month of learning has enriched me with more passion towards our career

goals. I was an intern at Coca-Cola, working in the E-Commerce division on coke2home.com.

Coke2home is the online retail store for selling HCCB beverages. The project focused on a

lot of aspects. The main aim of the project was to reduce the entire supply chain to much

more profitable levels.

To construct a model on Coke2Home and implement it with help of IT company. This model

will ensure delivery of coke to doorstep in hours. The model will reduce the delivery time

from One day delivery to few hours’ delivery. The home delivery will be done in the locality.

This will help the in exclusive partnership with Coca-Cola on unique direct to consumer

project, additional business, revenue & profits. It will also help them in increased retailer

equity & goodwill in the neighbourhood with increased customer loyalty. 

On the whole it was an amazing experience at Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages. The

coke2home.com, an e-commerce venture is designed in a way to help consumers to not

move around shops just to buy beverages. The experience led to a lot of e-commerce

understanding, also implementing the model was the need of the hour. Coke2home.com

has reduced not only shipping time but also has reduced the hassle for people to carry bulk

beverages to home with increased goodwill of coca-cola. Every student during internships

will be introduced to emerging learning techniques and will get an exposure to start of the

art concepts in areas of Business Excellence, Leadership Development and Skill Building. The

school focuses majorly on how much exposure of the industry could be given to students

which would benefit them for the rest of their live.
