About Program

Earn international work experience, immerse yourself in a new culture, and learn Spanish, all from the comfort of home. Virtual internships are the perfect way to gain cross-cultural understanding that will help you stand out in the job market. International virtual internships also provide you with experience in communicating across different time zones, cultures, and languages, giving you a more global experience than a local internship.

Our program is designed for you to gain the valuable work experience and skills you expect from an internship, and the guidance and training that will allow you to further develop your soft skills and personal competencies you need to thrive as a remote worker.

Your internship hours will be set between you and your mentor, depending on your needs. You will be assigned a mentor from the organization you are placed with who will guide you and answer your questions. Our team will be with you throughout the program to support you!

Virtual Internships in Costa Rica - Tourism

I found my virtual internship engaging and challenging. It has been a rewarding experience to work for a company from another part of the world and learn about their culture, language, and way of conducting business. My mentor has been attentive and available; she explained my tasks and projects clearly and I felt like a member of her company. We had a constructive debriefing meeting at the end of the internship, where she gave me some very good advise to take with me into my career. Thank you!
