As the job market becomes more competitive, those entering it for the first time need to find new ways to set themselves apart. That’s where internship programs come in. Internships are great ways to gain relevant work experience and learn new, useful skills that prepare young adults for the working world.
But what if you could do all of that without having to set foot in an office? In an increasingly digital world, it’s no surprise that many companies are moving towards remote working arrangements allowing employees to set up their office from the comfort of their own homes or a coffee shop in their favorite city. Therefore, newcomers to the job market need to be prepared to work remotely – especially in industries like IT, marketing, and media. Thankfully, many companies are now offering the unique opportunity of remote internship programs, and we at clovio really believe there are plenty of reasons why they’re beneficial for preparing fresh graduates for the 21st Century workforce.
Remote Work Is the Future
Remote internships can be a great opportunity to gain experience in many different industries, but they are especially useful if you dream of one day working in digital-first tech and media companies (like us!). If your dream job title includes words like “digital marketing”, “web development”, “social media manager” or “copywriting”, then you’re an excellent candidate for a remote internship. Many digital companies are moving towards total or partial remote working environments. At clovio, our team is fully remote and works out of two different countries! All in all, it’s great to get some experience working remotely as an intern. You’ll not only gain important skills but also learn to use digital work and productivity tools.
Gain New Skills
Internships are always a great opportunity to learn by doing. And in a remote internship there is a lot to learn! Not only do you gain specific skills in your field, you also get to learn about what it takes to work remotely. Remote work can be incredibly satisfying and freeing, but it also comes with its own challenges. As an intern, you will be able to start learning about important aspects of remote work such as task and time management, as well as learning to work independently while still enjoying the support of a remote team.
If you’re looking for an internship opportunity but you’re currently studying or working a part-time job, a remote internship program is perfect for you! Working remotely means you don’t have to worry about things like commuting to an office space or being tied to a set working schedule.
And if you like the traditional office environment, just ask! Many companies (like us at clovio) can offer you a combination of working remotely on your own time and doing some work at an office space.
Many remote teams are a lot of more diverse because people can work from anywhere in the world. At clovio, our team is made up of six different nationalities and we speak a total of nine languages! Gaining this kind of experience working in an international environment will not only make your internship more interesting, but it will help you gain important life skills such as understanding other cultures, communication and problem-solving skills, and many others.
Opportunity to Travel
With the flexibility that remote internships offer, you can also take the opportunity to travel while you work. Especially if you’re considering a summer internship when you have more free time, taking on a remote internship can be a great excuse to travel the world. For example, at clovio internship candidates can choose between Lisbon and Budapest (or both!) where our team is based, and explore these cities while working as remote interns.
