A Unique and Valuable Experience for Driven High School Students - Virtual Internships Foundations Program

When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit in 2020 and halted all travel plans, I found myself with an abundance of free time having finished the school year in June. While I could have stayed in my room all summer playing video games and watching TV, I instead chose to look into the possibility of completing an internship. Being in high school at the time and having had little relevant job experience, I was doubtful of the possibility of finding an internship over the summer. Luckily, I managed to find the Virtual Internships Foundations Program: a four-week online internship for driven high school students looking to gain valuable skills, knowledge, and exposure to their desired industry.

While initially a bit dubious of the internship's emphasis on teamwork, by the end of the four weeks, I realized how valuable this was as I was working with like-minded high school students of a similar driven nature. Not only was I able to network with students who were also considering careers in the business/finance sector, but I also received valuable, detailed, and specific feedback from both my host company (B Atomic: an e-insurance company) and program advisors on the quality of my team's work. Despite not having taken any business classes in high school, I was trained in areas such as marketing, brand management, HR, project management, and more which put me in good stead for starting my business degree at university. Finally, a key component of the program was guidance on resume writing, interview etiquette, and career management: all imperative skills when entering the workforce. Overall, this experience provided me the opportunity to network with like-minded people, learn about my industry of interest, produce high-quality, hands-on work, and gain an advantage over competitive first year university business students looking for employment. I would without doubt recommend Virtual Internships to those driven students looking to develop their soft skills, meet like-minded individuals, and learn about their industry of interest.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Presenting weekly projects to the Chief Marketing Officer of my host company was nerve-racking, but I overcame this by practicing the presentations with my group and ensuring the necessary research was done.

Virtual Internships Review

My month-long experience with Virtual Internships was a very positive one, where I worked directly under a top-level executive for a company with over 1000 employees. We worked to create mission and vision statements, job templates, advertising campaigns, websites, and more. I gained a lot of real-world experience, and a key takeaway was learning how to work efficiently with a group virtually, along with managing deadlines. I learned quite a lot from this program, and the time-management and collaborative skills I took away from this program will greatly benefit me when I go to college, along with once I start a job.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My most nerve-racking moment would have to be our final presentation where we shared the project we spent weeks building up to, which included an advertising campaign, sample email templates and a website that we designed.

My experience

Hey everyone. I am a senior High school student. I was looking for an internship to work with other companies. Scrolling down google I found this fantastic program that is a perfect match for me.
Not only do Virtual foundations connect you with the company but they also give you a superb collaborative team from different cultures and backgrounds to work with. Trust me, it's always amazing to meet new members from all around the world and see their way of thinking.
It is a great platform to start with your internship opportunity.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Have patience, collaboration, teamwork, researching ability, enjoy the program.

Virtual Internship Success

I absolutely loved my internship experience. I had the opportunity to gain real-world knowledge all while enjoying myself with engaging projects. I was nervous about a global internship at first because I hadn't ever worked in another country, but quickly felt right at home and was able to learn so much. I gained experience in marketing, sales, and even wrote articles for the company. It was such a great experience and I would advise anyone who is thinking of taking part in this program to definitely do so.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Dive right in! Don't be afraid to ask questions or be hesitant to try something new.

Great opportunity to gain experience

This was a great opportunity to gain work experience and gain connections anywhere in the world from the comfort of your own home. This experience allowed me to develop a number of transferable skills in the business area I was most interested in. It’s a great addition to add to your CV and employers are always interested in a candidate who’s worked for an oversees firm. As the experience was virtual I was able to complete it from anywhere in the world at times that were most convenient for me.

Great opportunity to gain work experience

Virtual Internships were brilliant at matching me and my interests to a company that helped me get the most out of the program. I gained lots of experience and it was so useful having people in the industry I want to work in (the media industry) to talk to and ask questions about how it works and how to get my foot in the door.

The online resources from Virtual Internships was mostly good, it definitely motivated to keep making sure I was getting the most out of my internship. Some of the information was quite outdated or sometimes contradictory though, so I would take their online advice with a pinch of salt!

You also get two meetings with a mentor, one halfway through your internship and one at the end, and that was definitely very useful in making sure I was keeping track of what I was gaining from the internship, as now I know exactly what to put in my CV for it!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Make sure I am communicating to the company what I want out the program from the outset - I started doing this halfway through my internship and it was brilliant once I did this.

Great Opportunity to Explore!

I got to experience working as a financial data analyst for a UK company, and it was an eye-opening experience as I got to learn more about finance as an industry, which has definitely helped me in my graduate recruitment journey!
As this internship is virtual, I also gained valuable skills in how to work effectively and independently when working at home. My manager was very supporting, and the Virtual Internships team was very helpful in answering all my queries.
If you are struggling to find work experience, do give Virtual Internships a try as you will definitely gain a lot out of the programme.

Amazing virtual experience!

I was set up with a marketing agency in China during summer 2020 and learned so much about the industry. It was invaluable experience that has helped me secure a competitive graduate scheme! I worked for 20 hours a week, giving enough time for enjoying the summer, as well as undertaking supplementary courses. There was also a lot of extra course content from Virtual Internships themselves, as well as really enjoyable webinars on topics such as interview skills. It is also an amazing opportunity to gain well valued international experience.
