Acquiring a Virtual Internship
- Aim for internship opportunities that relate to your passions
and future goals. Your work will be largely self-motivated and
having a high level of interest will be beneficial to both you
and the institution that you intern with.
- Apply for more than one internship. Setting your sights on
one specific internship may not be realistic. A position may
already be filled or project needs at an internship site may
change. Your best bet is to apply for several internships that
interest you and narrow the choice down later if necessary.
- Some virtual internship sites will ask for your resume and a cover letter as part of
their application process. Check out these helpful tips for
writing a resume and a cover letter.
