An online (remote) internship where the participant (intern) gains experience while working in a remote professional setting without being physically present at the job location.
How does this benefit employers?
Access to a wide talent pool
With the option to access the ProInterns platform, as an employer you have full access to a wider talent pool which greatly increases the number and diversity of candidates for these positions. From this, there are more options available from which to select the right person for the team since the consideration of geographical location is not a primary concern.
The concept of online internships eliminates the need for extra office space, computers, and other supplies that an employer needs to have in an office-based location. Project-based virtual internships also protect employers of the paid interns from having to pay for unproductive time at work.
As ProInterns, we highly recommend that employers set aside a budget to support remote work for the interns for example a budget for data bundles or airtime.
The flexibility of interns to have less time traveling to work and more time fulfilling their tasks with constant communication on updates. Startups and SMEs companies in particular can appreciate the flexibility that comes with having extra workers on an as-needed basis.
Online internships allow employers to assign work as it arises, without having to worry about keeping interns occupied with busywork.
