Virtual International Internships

Students need to think about and prepare for the global graduate labour market of the future. Remote working skills, the ability to build professional relationships with others from different cultures online, and having the ability to deliver projects outside of the office will be core skills required by employers of tomorrow. As remote work becomes embedded into the culture of work on a global scale, it is essential that young people future-proof their careers and gain global remote working skills. Join this session to explore what Virtual Internships are, why they are essential to your future employability and why you should think about adding one to your CV.
