Traditional in-person internships are no longer a viable option for most students, since the introduction of lockdown. As a result, virtual internships are growing in popularity as a great alternative since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Here are a few other benefits of a remote internship:
- Save money and time: Unlike traditional internships, you won’t be expected to commute, and you can work from anywhere in the world, meaning you save money on rent and travel costs.
- Enhance your resume: Working from home will improve your time management and self-discipline while you gain work experience.
