Internships are a great way to give yourself exposure to a professional work environment and get a feel for how real life works. Most colleges and universities have a placement office that helps place students with nearby businesses and public agencies to help you gain some work experience. These type of internships are the best. You dress up professionally, show up at a certain time, take a lunch break with the rest of the company and get off with the rest of the employees at the end of the day.
Most internships are 6 weeks to 3 months. Some pay a stipend, some don’t.
But what do do when you are unable to physically attend an office to do a conventional internship? Maybe you have a baby at home that you can’t leave with a care giver. Maybe you have a sick family member at home. Maybe you have started a job to earn some money but it is not in your field of interest or education. You are simply doing it because you need the money. Yet you need to do an internship to get experience in a relevant field.
In situations where you cannot physically attend an office to do an internship, you should consider remote internships. Thanks to the internet, you can work from home and if you can find a company that offers remote internships, you can apply and interview. If selected, you will learn, get some experience and boost your resume.
Now companies that offer remote internships have to assign resources to help you learn so if you get such an opportunity, take it seriously and work hard at it. Otherwise, the company may terminate your internship or decline to give you a certificate of completion. That will be a waste of their time and a wasted opportunity for you.
