Internships for High School Students

It’s never too early to gain work experience. As a high school student, internships offer you the chance to ‘try on’ a career before you commit to a higher education path that takes you into that field or industry. What’s more, whilst interning remotely with global companies on key projects, you’ll gain experience that will boost your university/college application beyond your peers.
