Online Internship from Home
There are many situations - predictable or not - that make traveling difficult or even impossible. Nevertheless, you can still do an internship in an international company, simply online! If you wish to do a compulsory internship, you have the possibility to do it from home.
Which Country & Industry Suits You?
You can do a remote internship in international companies in different countries. Tell us about your goals and ideas, we will find the right destination and internship industry for you!
Work Internationally from Home!
Gain international work experience without leaving home. This is only possible thanks to our digitalized world, thus removing a barrier that many students are constantly faced with: traveling to a distant country. Because: Travel is an investment that many people have to save for. And since the fewest internships are allowed to be paid, no income can be expected during an internship abroad.
Whether you do the internship from home or from another place in the world is basically irrelevant. It is important that you have a good Internet connection and that you are available for agreed virtual meetings.
The Placement Process
The placement of a virtual internship is similar to a normal internship abroad. After a personal interview with us and your revised application documents, we will start the placement in a foreign company in your internship area. In a Skype or phone interview, the host company can get a picture of you and you too can learn more about the job description. Once the internship is confirmed, you will receive an internship contract in which the duration of the internship, working hours, and work areas are defined and then you can start!
The time-consuming planning of the visa and the trip to the country itself is of course not necessary here. So you can not only start an internship at short notice but also without financial planning
This should be emphasized in the virtual internship:
Meeting Schedules & Work-Plans
Regular meetings and digital team meetings are the be-all and end-all of your virtual internship abroad! Because where you usually have the opportunity to ask your work colleagues for advice at any time, now you only have the opportunity for team meetings. For you, this means structuring and collecting your questions and then working through them in online meetings.
Definition of Objectives
Many tasks you now have to do independently from home. Furthermore, there is not always the possibility to clarify questions directly with your supervisor. As a result, you should define goals together with your internship company, especially at the beginning. What exactly is your task, how much work should you invest in which part, which tasks are not part of your responsibility, etc. Over the duration of the internship this will be easier for you and you will also practice project management very well!
Even though you may have flexible working hours and can plan your own daily routine, you should always be available for your employer. Depending on the location of the host company and the time difference, this can mean being online at night for a meeting or for queries.
