How to Get a Remote Internship

After you’ve found a few virtual internships you’re interested in, you’ll want to develop a game plan. Remote internships are in high demand. Meaning you want to give your internship interview, cover letter and resume your very best. Know what skills you can bring to the table that other applicants cannot! If you have taken a college course or completed a project related to the internship responsibilities, share this with your interviewer. In 2021, interviewers will be looking for students with self-drive, and superior time management skills. Internship employers want to know they’re hiring an intern that’s reliable, on-task and works well independently. Consider this when preparing for your interview questions. Also, think of a few situations you’ve adapted in 2020 due to the pandemic. Update your resume to include unique ways you’ve used technology, or how you adapted to get team projects done in a virtual setting. Use this internship cover letter example as a guide; modify it to fit your positive 2020 experiences.

Know the Interview Platform

Odds are your remote internship interview will be a virtual experience. If you can, ask what platform you’ll be expected to interview on a week before your interview. Take some time to familiarize yourself with this digital platform. Plan a practice interview with your friend or ask an instructor if they could call you on the digital platform for a mock interview. Be sure you know all the ins and outs of FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Zoom—whatever the tool is that will be used for your remote-internship interview.
