Foundations is our High School virtual internship program allowing students to work in groups of 4 to complete business and marketing projects for real global host companies supported by an Internship Facilitator giving group and individualized guidance. Our program is project-based and work with companies that are trained and ready to support high school students.
Virtual Internships is a structured program allowing university students to receive a guaranteed internship placement working 20 – 30 hours weekly across 1, 2, or 3 months. Our internships are project-based and with companies across the globe that are carefully vetted and trained to work with international students.
The Foundations program is perfect for students in high school (9th – 12th grade) and seeking opportunities to start building their resume while furthering their exploration of future career pathways.
Virtual Internships program is ideal for students 18+ with some work experience looking to gain professional experience and increased transferable skills for future employability.
All students completing a virtual internship program will walk away with a Global Employability Certificate and Global Career Management Plan completed during their career coaching call. Our programs are grounded in NACE career readiness competencies, and students will walk away able to articulate their transferable skills while identifying key project examples from their past internship to apply to their resume/CV, interviews, and future employment opportunities.
Program can be 4, 8, or 12 weeks with students dedicating 20-30 hours weekly.
Majority of the program is delivered asynchronously with interns navigating their own schedule and aligning it to their host companies schedule. Work and meetings will exist outside the standard 9-5.
Foundations has set start dates identified for summer 2020 and will post additional dates for winter 2020 and summer 2021 shortly. Check live dates here.
Virtual Internships Standard has rolling start dates every other monday and requires confirmation of participation 6 weeks in advance. Check live dates here.
All Virtual Internship Programs are priced at $1595 USD. Virtual Internships has worked hard to ensure that the programs are similarly priced despite Foundations requiring increased facilitation, support and curriculum.
Our Virtual Internships Program is a set $1595 USD price regardless of duration. Virtual Internships acknowledges that the longer the internship the experience the better and did not want financial accessibility to limit program duration for students. Furthermore, our key deliverables of coaching calls, online curriculum, and guaranteed internship placement remain constant across durations making the duration price differences negligible.
