VIRTUAL INTERNSHIP

From small businesses to multinational corporations, more and more organizations are moving to a hybrid or work-from-anywhere environment. A work culture like this requires independence, motivation and time management. Hone these skills and more with virtual internship opportunities with AIFS Abroad.

With the flexibility to intern wherever you wish, a remote position with an international company will ensure that cross-cultural communication skills are developed and problem-solving and critical thinking know-how is improved. Thanks to AIFS Abroad’s professional development, learn how to leverage these refined competencies and experiences into future interviews and jobs.

Virtual internships run during the fall, winter, spring and summer terms for 8 or 12 weeks with the option for full-time or part-time work.

Placement Process

The AIFS Abroad Enrollment Team reviews application materials, which are a combination of relevant work experience, college or university level course work, and an assessment of maturity and readiness for working in a professional setting. After a participant has been accepted, we guarantee an internship placement.

Our team works with applicants 1:1 to gain a better understanding of the skills they will bring to their team, talents they want to grow, and expectations they have of their experience. By working individually with each intern we can assess academic knowledge, career goals, language proficiency, and overall expectations for your virtual internship, in order to place you in a dynamic work environment.

Once a match is found, all interns will interview by phone or Zoom with their manager before the placement is offered and confirmed. When your internship begins, your program advisor will be there to support you with virtual check-ins and coaching to make the most of your internship placement.
