Virtual Internships

For Companies

HireEdge works with companies of all sizes to create compelling virtual internship experiences for students. Learn more here about how virtual internships can work for your organization, and reach out through the form below for an exploratory conversation to discuss possibilities.

What Is a
Virtual Internship?

  • Our Virtual Internships are a modern day approach to student internships offering an entirely remote experience students can engage in from any location.
     

  • We collaborate with client companies to craft a 4 to 6 week project addressing a real business priority and then assemble a qualified student internship team.
     

  • The internship is managed by a HireEdge Advisor - an executive with at least 15 years of relevant experience - who meets regularly with the students 1:1 and as a group to guide them and supervise the project.
     

  • The HireEdge Advisor also organizes and facilitates the 2 to 4 touchpoints with the company’s executive sponsor from initial kickoff call through final presentation.

Students are Ready
 

  • Students are having to revisit their plans and are actively seeking internship experiences right now.

  • Students are much more comfortable working remotely than they were just a few months ago, and they have developed a new level of familiarity with the tools of remote work such as web conferencing, cloud-based software, and shared files.

  • Many students and parents would actually prefer remote or virtual internship experiences in today’s uncertain environment.
