Virtual Internships

Introduction

Gain international work experience and build your resumé — from your laptop! With a virtual internship, you can put accessibility and mobility concerns aside and develop a meaningful professional connection with an international company. Here you will gain the skills necessary to thrive in today’s economy, including digital literacy, cross-cultural communication, time management, and much more.

How it Works

Step 1

Apply

Submit your application and start working with your Enrollment Advisor. You will have an interview so they can learn about your career goals, educational background, and preferences to ensure that you are a good candidate for a virtual internship.

Step 2

Accept

Once your interview and application are complete, your Enrollment Advisor and our Placement Team will determine if we can accept you into the program. If accepted, this means we guarantee you a virtual internship within your career field.

Step 3

Enroll

The step is to simply enroll in the program by paying the full tuition to secure your spot. Enrolling means you have officially decided to join the Global Experiences program and take on the challenge of a virtual international internship!

Step 4

Prepare

Before you are matched with an employer, you will work one-on-one with your Program Advisor. They will help you with professional development, career advising, the Strengths assessment, and best-practices for a virtual internship.

Step 5

Interview

We will start the matchmaking process and narrow down an employer for which you would be a great fit. You’ll have a Skype or phone interview to confirm it’s a great match for everyone, and if all goes well, your internship is confirmed!

Step 6

Intern

You’ll begin your internship on your confirmed start date. The beauty of a virtual internship is that you can work from anywhere! Global Experiences Virtuoso is here for you – no matter where in the world you are.

GE Virtuoso is a new international internship product from the market-leading internship brand Global Experiences. Virtuoso blends GE’s classic intern abroad program quality with a digital connection to an internationally based employer.

GE Virtuoso’s placement process works the same way that GE’s international internships do. You will work with a GE Enrollment Advisor when applying to the program. If accepted, you will be guaranteed an internship in your career field. Once you pay the program fee to enroll in the program, your Program Advisor will work with you directly to complete some professional development activities and arrange an interview for you with an employer. If the interview goes well, then you’ll complete your virtual international internship with that employer.

The success of a virtual international internship lies in the hands of the intern. This is an excellent opportunity to highlight your ability to manage your schedule and prioritize tasks. As a GE intern, you will learn how to effectively speak to future employers about what you’ve learned and the skills you’ve gained during your virtual international internship.

Through GE, you are entering a structured program with verified employers and a strong focus on professional development. Every participant takes the CliftonStrengths assessment and receives personalized coaching, plus one-on-one consultation calls, interview prep, cover letter and resume revision. During the program, participants benefit from welcome and exit orientations, virtual site visits, and check-ins with GE staff. Students also have the option to earn credit alongside their internship with a maximum of 12 credit hours.

No, you do not need to be a current student to participate in GE Virtuoso. You must be 18 years or older and have some university coursework completed. The upper age limit is 30 years old, but exceptions are possible.

As with many internships, the vast majority of our internship placements are unpaid. Compensation is at the discretion of the employer. We look for employment opportunities that allow our interns to gain the best possible hands-on work experience.

This can vary based on the agreed schedule with the employer, as well as your personal internship goals.
