Why do a virtual internship?

The greatest advantage of a remote internship is that you can do it from anywhere at any time – all you need is your laptop. Whether you’re balancing your studies, a job or family commitments, a virtual internship allows you to build your career from anywhere.

Boost your employability

Gaining remote work experience will boost your employability. Having a virtual internship with a leading, global company on your resume demonstrates to future employers that you can thrive in a remote environment and have the skills needed to be a valuable asset to their team, such as self-discipline, cross-cultural fluency and digital literacy. These skills are crucial for any career path you choose to pursue, whether it’s remote or not. 

Leading companies across the globe are increasingly turning to remote working. This trend has been seen for years but is now accelerating rapidly due to a series of external factors like COVID-19 and climate change.

Global conglomerates are questioning whether or not their brick and mortar offices are strictly necessary. Similarly, studies have shown that flexible working options make for happier and more productive employees. This in turn contributes to a happier and more efficient company, and a healthier planet – a win win.

The labor market now demands talent that thrives in a remote environment. Our virtual internship program will give you the experience and skills to thrive in a remote environment, and the knowledge to leverage this with future employers.
