10 Virtual Fall Internships You Can Apply For Right Now

We live in the age of the Internet, in which Skype interviews have replaced phone interviews and “work” means being attached to your laptop and cell phone at all times or else. But another phenomenon that’s been rapidly on the rise is that of the virtual—or remote—internship. With these positions, you can work from anywhere in the country—from a Starbucks in New York City to in your PJs at home in Los Angeles and anywhere in between—as long as you have Internet access. Pretty sweet, right?

A virtual internship is a seriously awesome way to gain professional experience while saving hours in commute time and tons of money in gas or train fares. They’re also fantastic if you live in a smaller city with fewer opportunities in your field. So what are you waiting for? Remote internships can be found on almost any internship search website, but here at Her Campus we did the hard part for you. Here are 10 virtual fall internships that you can apply for today—so dust off those resumes!
