By Ting-Tien Wee

Hello fellow students in need of internships! This week we will be looking solely at VIRTUAL internships. Now you are probably asking yourself, what type of internships are virtual? No, you will not be thrown into a digital world with the mission of saving it using lighted disks. (This is what I thought it was initially, but being the smart students that you are, you probably know better). A virtual internship entails the student working offsite or remotely for a company. Some virtual internships will have the student come in to company offices for a little bit, but for the most part, the student’s time will be spent offsite.

Here are my top virtual internships this week:
