Virtual 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.

2. Prepare

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.

3. Start

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.
