Frequently asked questions

  • How do we select Host Companies?

  • What should Host Companies do when onboarding interns?
    Standard onboarding practices include reviewing policies and procedures and overview of organizational structure. In order for the interns to get oriented and affiliated with the team, a virtual team meeting should be conducted for introductions and briefings on internship objectives within the first few days. This will provide interns the opportunity to ask clarifying questions, as this might be their first professional development environment, and is likely their first virtually-based position. You should also consider introducing the interns to Careers360 mentor who provides thorough, personal and timely support to virtual interns.
  • What is a typical work schedule for a virtual intern?
    Although a key feature of remote internships is the flexibility of the work schedule, Host Companies and interns should agree upon a definitive time allotment per week and per day for internship activities. Shift caps – defining the amount of accrued time allotted for any given task – are strongly recommended to avoid unreasonable work demands on the student and any conflict with reported internship hours.
