A remote internship is a project-based internship experience that can be done from a remote location, without the need to be physically present at the office during office hours. You’ll be embarking on an international experience at no travel cost, completing your work without a commute and directly from your own laptop!
Remote internships will allow you to market yourself to future employers, prove your worth remotely at no travel cost, and kick-start an international career from anywhere
Doing a remote internship with a global company will help you obtain the skills needed to be a valuable asset to future employers, such as time management, cross-cultural fluency and self-discipline. Having this skill-set in your resume proves you can thrive in a remote environment and will ultimately boost your employability.
A resume that shows a willingness to embrace risk -in roles, industries, even location- is an asset in these uncertain times. Students who have remote work experience gain flexibility and resilience.
It’s your Adaptability Quotient (AQ) -and no longer your IQ or Emotional Quotient (EQ)- that will allow you to acquire new skills and get ready to navigate the future after graduation.
Whether you’re combining your studies, a job, or family commitments, a remote internship allows you to go global from your home, having flexible hours 20 – 30 h per week to meet academic requirements or other responsibilities. Having access to a greater international network of professionals is the biggest advantage of remote internships.
