Remote Work Skills
It's no secret that the recent massive move to remote working will continue for the foreseeable future. Many companies are establishing permanent remote work policies, meaning there is an increasing demand for professionals with previous remote work experience & skills in software/platforms, communication, problem solving, etc.
Unlike a traditional online internship, our Virtual Internships allow you to choose a country to explore professional skills and gain cross-cultural competence.
Traveling for work or study (especially long term) can present a huge financial barrier for many individuals. A virtual international internship allows you to still gain the career & global skills from an international work environment, without the need for travel.
