Are remote internships good? You might be wondering yourself. Or is remote internships legit? People have been working remotely for years, so it’s not a brand new concept for employers around the world and definitely very legit.

Thanks to tools such as Slack and WeChat companies were still able to keep in touch with their team members and interns.
