If you’re looking for an intern but don’t need someone who works on premise, you might try a “vintern.” That’s what Cyberinterns.com is calling an intern who works remotely for a company. The new beta site connects small business owners with currently more than 3,500 students seeking virtual internships.
According to Cyberinterns Founder Talan Torriero, a part-time, unpaid internship is generally 20 hours a week and is done by the student for experience and college credit, although paid internships are also listed at the site. He says the guidelines for receiving school credit are the same as a “typical” internship.
“The biggest misconception of a virtual internship is that it doesn’t hold the same weight as a typical internship. This is not true as universities and employers are quickly conforming to the idea that working virtually is a complete reality for almost everyone with today’s tech,” Torriero says.
A 30-day listing is normally $49, but you can get 75% off by using the Code “Inc” when checking out.
