There are 8 tips from to develop a mutually beneficial virtual internship strategy in this article. I've shortlisted the most important ones:
1. Incorporate Real World Activities To Build Practical Experience
Without simulations and case studies - safe spaces to practice and ask questions - your interns will take longer to assimilate.
2. Conduct Online Pre-Assessments And Surveys
Find out what they know, what they don't know, what they're interested to know about and build personalised insight plans accordingly.
3. Offer Ongoing Online Support And Feedback
Interns, like us all, need ongoing support and feedback so that they can continually improve. This is a two way process. You must give to get.
If you are looking at your own programme and would like advice from those already doing virtual, let us know, we can connect you.
Laptops, tablets, and smartphones become the tools of the trade, and web conferencing tools are used in lieu of boardrooms. But a successful virtual internship program relies on an effective implementation plan.
