Benefits of Internships for High School Students
Choosing your degree
During high school it is easy to feel lost and overwhelmed when having to choose a subject to study at college/university. It is difficult to make a decision when you have no real knowledge of the sector you are committing to study in for many more years. By doing a remote internship in one of our four career tracks: Business, Creative, Tech or Non-Profit, you will discover more about the path you would be committing to. Whether this experience confirms your choice of degree or changes it completely, you will definitely find it easier to make a decision on your future.
Being accepted to University
As well as the stress of choosing your subject, you also have to worry about your applications to be accepted into university! Standing out from the crowd is the best way to ensure you are accepted into your dream college. How can you do this? Gaining real world experience with tangible results. During this 4 week internship you will be working on projects that will have results. This is what you can use in your applications to prove your dedication to this subject.
Go global from anywhere
Not only are these internships in real companies, they are also situated across the world. You could be interning for a company located in Singapore, Portugal, London or many others. This will allow you to gain experience with different working cultures and environments and increase your international exposure.
