How to make the most of a virtual internship

A virtual internship is an effective way to gain skills and exposure without physically going to the work location. However, your commitment and planning will help you reap the best results from the internship opportunity.

Here are some ways in which you can make the most of your online internship:

  • Interact with peers and superiors at the organization you are interning with
  • Understand their expectations and set your goals
  • Be candid about your strengths and weaknesses
  • Understand the work culture and try to align with it
  • Be punctual to log in, dress up professionally and organize your remote workspace well
  • Stick to deadlines. Communicate the reasons honestly, if there is a delay
  • Do not hesitate to ask for help
  • Ask for feedback and work on it
