Remote Internship Program Benefits
How it Works
1. Get in touch
Contact us and we’ll schedule a free consultation session to discuss your interests and goals. We can answer any questions about potential placements and, together, define your ideal internship. Then, complete our application form, providing additional information about your background and preferences.
If your application is accepted, we guarantee placement and we’ll work together to find the ideal role for you. The placement process typically takes 2 to 6 weeks, and during this time, we’ll help you revise your resumé as well as prepare for internship interviews.
After attending our online orientation, where we provide tips about remote work and local culture and where you can meet other participants, it’s time to get started! We’ll be there every step of the way, via feedback meetings and coaching sessions, to ensure that you receive maximum value both during the internship and for your future career.
What are the durations and hours?
Durations are flexible, however to make the most of the experience, we suggest a minimum of 6 weeks, 20 to 30 hours per week. Longer durations and additional / fewer hours are also possible.
Where are your partner companies located?
For on-site internships, over the years, we’ve placed thousands of students in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Dublin, Shanghai, and Sydney. For remote internships, while we focus on those cities, we have contacts worldwide. If you have a preferred destination, including internships in the United States, please let us know.
What industries are possible?
Internship projects are available across a wide range of fields including advertising, business, communications, design, education, engineering, finance, health care, human rights, journalism, marketing, social work, sustainable development and many more! Since we find custom internships, specifically related to your interests, let us know your goals and we’ll suggest best-fit options.
Can I receive academic credit?
Yes, please discuss with us and we’re happy to liaise with your university. We also offer supplemental courses, related to cultural competence and effective communication, to fit university requirements and curriculum.
What is the cost?
Our flat fee of $895 includes pre-internship consultations, customized placement, on-going mentorship and advice, curated seminars related to cultural competence and remote working, and post-internship career guidance.
What are the requirements?
To get started, we ask for your up to date resume or CV as well as one letter of reference, ideally from a professor or past supervisor. If you don’t have the letter at the time of application, we can start the process without it.
