What types of internships are available and who are eligible to apply?
Ashok Leyland offers a number of internship opportunities for engineering and management graduates in the domains of Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Business Planning, Advanced Engineering, Product Design, Manufacturing Management, Information Technology, Finance, and HR. Pre-final year students of mechanical, automobile engineering & related streams and MBA are eligible to apply.

How to apply?
Online Application: Students can register here and apply by uploading their resumes. For all the recruitment related queries, you can drop an email at

Through a referral: If you know someone who works at Ashok Leyland, ask her to provide you a referral. You can even find some employees through Facebook or LinkedIn for this.

Getting in touch with the HR executive: Find a previous/current employee/intern and ask her to provide you the HR’s email address. E-mail the HR directly clearly stating your purpose, with a strong cover letter and resume.

Through college/university: Contact the Ashok Leyland office you wish to intern at through the Training and Placement cell of your college.

What after applying?
A structured process matches the submitted resumes with the available key projects. CGPA and project experience plays an important role in the selection.
It is followed by two rounds of interviews – technical and HR. Technical interviews mostly consist of questions pertaining to your past projects and areas of interests. Few sample technical questions are:
Explain stress-strain graph for ductile materials
• Why should we provide tolerance for components?
• Explain drift and drag
• What is the length of the pen in your pocket?
• Why is the emission test for a car conducted with the entire car running while only the engine is tested on the bed in case of heavy engines?
• What mechanism does the wiper of a car work on?

The HR questions are pretty basic and test your understanding of the company’s business. Few sample HR questions are:
• What do you feel you can do to add value to the company’s business?
• What do you expect from this internship?
• What is your biggest strength and weakness?
• What do you know about our business strategy?

Once the internship starts, interns are assigned to a particular department depending on their specialization. A mentor is responsible for guiding the intern throughout the internship. An average monthly stipend of 10-12K is offered to the interns. Free lunch is also provided in all the factories.

Word of advice from ex-interns:
Interview tips: Know about the commercial vehicle business and about the major players and trends in manufacturing. Having some knowledge about the competitors like Tata Motors also helps. Answer all the questions with confidence and when you don’t know a specific answer, clearly communicate that – don’t beat around the bush.

Getting placed: Interns have a good chance of getting the pre-placement offer at the end of the internship. The decision is made on the basis of an intern’s performance and competencies displayed during the internship.

Learning opportunities: The open work culture provides a plethora of learning opportunities. Interns get a chance to work with cutting-edge technological equipment and can participate in different projects across departments.
