Why not intern remotely this Fall semester? If traveling abroad is not an option for you this year, an international internship does not have to be out of reach!
You will be placed with a suitable Italian company and you will be assigned a supervisor who will remain in regular contact with you during your internship. They will assign tasks to you, include you in online meetings and give you feedback on your progress throughout.
Some of our internships require you to have a basic level of Italian language skills but we also have companies who communicate in English only so even if you don't speak Italian you can still do this internship program!
Interning remotely is a great way to be part of an international team, to gain experience working for a company based abroad and to gain a strong understanding of both the advantages and challenges of working remotely. You will improve practical skills such as online meeting etiquette, how to get your perspective across without interrupting during Zoom meetings, how to actively listen and analyse meeting content and how to make valuable contributions to team members located throughout the world in different time zones and with different cultural perspectives.
As well as all of this you will gain valuable experience in your chosen field. You will be given real world tasks where your contribution and input will not only be considered but often fully implemented.
The EZC Remote Internship program also includes 3 online seminars or CareerChats. Seminar topics may include:
Our CareerChats are online meetings with people who work in your chosen field. You will have an opportunity to chat with these people to understand how they got to where they are now in their careers, which paths they took, what kind of work experience was most valuable to them and more. EZC has developed these CareerChats to give students a chance to see that there isn't always only one path to get to your desired destination and often the destination can change during the journey and that's ok too!
