If you’re looking to get ahead in your career, what would be a better strategy than completing a long-distance virtual internship? It’s not just going to give you an edge over the competition; it’s also going to revolutionize the way that people get access to academic institutions. Not even remotely close? (ex. uacj aula virtual)

How can you do virtual campus smart? 

1. Work for free.

If you’re going to pay for an internship, make sure that it is directly related to your desired career path and that it actually has a paycheck attached to it. Besides, you can offer your service for free (and even get paid if the employer realizes that you are actually valuable resources).

2. Figure out what’s worth doing.

I have never met anyone who didn’t want to start out in their careers as a project manager or a social media manager or a website designer or even an actress. The jobs aren’t as glamorous, but they’re usually still ten times more profitable than the real world equivalent.

3. Get an “internship”.

Don’t put in a resume for an actual internship. Instead send out a cover letter and a brochure about yourself and the services that you provide for the position and be sure to include any credentials or proof that you actually do what you say that you do. Once you are hired, don’t expect to be paid (although I am sure that they are willing to shell out a small backup) and don’t expect any benefits (such as health insurance).

4. Do it at your school or in someone else’s dorm room.

You might be looking at this and thinking, “Wait, doesn’t that mean that I’m really just doing an internship with another university?”

Nope. It all depends on whether you can get the internship with your school or off campus at some other university. There’s not much of a difference and if you do it off campus, then you’re actually supposed to get paid for the job. Just make sure that you don’t violate any licensing laws about selling services in your state or country (and if you live in the US, then don’t worry about it because everything is illegal).

5. Search out local opportunities.

Chances are that you won’t be able to get an internship off campus in a major city, but you can definitely find something that is related to your field of study in a major city. If you live close enough to a large metropolitan area, then spend some time looking for an internship at one of the university’s satellite campuses. If you can’t find anything there (or if there aren’t any) then look into starting your own project or social media site on your own and getting it sponsored by one of the corporations in the city.

6. Learn 

Learn what it means to do an online internship because that’s what is expected; which believe me, is not very much at all.

7. Make sure that you don’t use any resources off campus for your online internship for more than half the week.

This will allow the employer to pay you, and if they are going to pay you then they should be willing to pay a fair wage and not just a few pennies (okay, maybe 5 or 10 cents). Depending on the type of internship that you have, that is usually how much money it will cost them in wages just to get access to your knowledge.

8. Don’t expect any benefits 

Don’t expect any benefits (other than possibly housing or even internet) until after your first year of service and set up a cash plan with benefits so that you can save up for retirement. Do not expect that you will have access to any medical plans (even with your job) because you will be sharing a policy with several other interns and any employees who work at the university at the time.

9. Join in on campus events or create a new one of your own.

How do you get people to come to your virtual intern event? First, sell tickets. Second, advertise it on campus by putting up posters (even if it is an online one) and talking about it in the school newsletter. If you want to set up something really special for the event then figure out what the biggest social problems are on campus and then use that as a theme for your online event.

10. Have a goal.

It’s not going to matter what you do for an online internship, but it does matter about what you hope to gain from it in the future. Do you want to get ahead of the competition? Or do you just want a chance to shine? Sure there are some people who are willing to put in hours and hours of work for nothing more than the satisfaction that comes with being able to say “I have an internship.” (especially if they have high grades)

Conclusion of this article:

If you are going to do an online internship then make sure that you do it smart and that you don’t let it take up your entire career. It is possible to get rich from doing an online internship, and just remember – no matter what people tell you, being crazy never gets you anywhere.
