Virtual Internships started in 2018 after recognizing that the future of work was at our doorstep, and more students across the world would need to prepare for remote work experience as well as create a network of virtual connections to succeed. The founders also recognised the importance of reducing barriers to internships to widen diversity and inclusion in overall internship participation. VI’s inaugural program was able to leverage the expertise of CRCC Asia, which at the time had 10+ years of experience cultivating host company networks and best practices for supporting interns. This served as a great framework for VI as it adapted its support for a virtual programming landscape. Throughout the past 2 years, VI has supported hundreds of students in accessing remote internship experiences.
After viewing successful remote internship models slowly building at universities and leaning into #thefutureofwork, co-founders of CRCC Asia begin creating the blueprint for Virtual Internships.
Virtual Internships launched using 10 years of international internship expertise and host company support to create a fully supportive program connecting students with remote work across the globe
After successful university and individual student engagement Virtual Internships hit 200 program alumni who developed quality work experience at a distance.
With #thefutureofwork at our doorstep, Virtual Internships is poised to deliver a tried and tested program to students across the globe, connecting them with dynamic host companies worldwide.
