Global Virtual Internships
Work for companies around the world
Global Virtual Internships are a great way to:
Diversify your resume
While it may not seem like it, your college career goes by in a blink of an eye. Next thing you know it will be your senior year and you will be thinking about what to do after college. A global virtual internship may be exactly what you need! Diversify your resume for your future career or graduate school with this great opportunity that will ultimately prepare you for your next steps after college.
Develop the skills you need to succeed
By completing a virtual internship, you will gain professional work experience in a virtual setting. This experience will only help you in the long run, as statistics suggest that working from home is here to stay. In 2019 (pre-pandemic), 52% of employees around the world worked from home at least once per week and 68% of global employees worked from home at least once per month. So in order to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace, learning the skills to work from home is a necessity, and this is a great way for you to learn and develop the skills you need to succeed.
Gain valuable experience
With a global virtual internship, you will work for companies all around the world, both large and small. You will gain the experience and skills necessary to be successful in time management, online work platforms, and more. International experience is also a skill that more and more employers are starting to look for when hiring employees. You can gain international experience by working for an international company and working with your supervisor and coworkers. Overall, a global virtual internship requires you to have self discipline and independence, so this is a great way to develop those skills.
