The Visão Foundation is a grassroots non-profit seeking individuals to help us grow as an organization. We are offering a range of opportunities to enable skill-development while making a real difference in the lives of people in need. Virtual internships provide a great opportunity for individuals to gain practical experience in the non-profit world while working in a remote setting. VI's utilize technology such as the web, email, cloud software, Google+ etc. to complete tasks and assignments.
The Benefits of Going Virtual
1. Flexible Schedules: Being a virtual intern gives you the opportunity to manage a work schedule around the time slots that work best for you. This works perfectly for students who are looking for work experience, but have additional commitments i.e. student organizations, part-time jobs…homework!
2.. Location: Virtual internships require only an internet connection to work, so you can set up shop anywhere. Work on a project at the library or complete work assignments between classes, since there is no physical office to report to, every open opportunity you have can potentially become “intern time.” An added bonus is that it will teach you excellent time management skills.
3. Broaden Your Network: As a virtual intern you will have an opportunity to network with a whole new spectrum of professionals in their field. Interns can connect and work with other interns and full-time staff members on assignments that will allow them to learn more and broaden their network in far away cities. This is especially helpful if the intern wants to relocate to the area after graduation.
4. Acquire Practical Skills: Learn how to be part of a virtual team, how to overcome challenges like working with limited communication and with time change elements, how to be self-motivators, how to meet deadlines without micromanagement, and how to manage your time efficiently.
