Are you a college student looking to get some real-world experience? Are you looking to fill your resume, and learn how your studies are actually practiced in a real-life company? Are you looking to meet people who have your future job and get paid for it?
This exciting opportunity is for a college student looking to get a jumpstart on their career within a growing corporation. At Virtual, our Internship Program is unique in that we encourage all of our interns to have a voice in the company and to learn and grow during your time with us through shaowing opportunities and taking part in cross-functional projects. You'll also get a chance to sit down with senior executives, learn about their background and dig a little deeper into how they got where they are today while they share advice on things that helped them along the way.
You will gain a deeper understanding of the way that business works outside of the classroom, and you will have the chance to network with successful colleagues in your field of study.
