High school students, do you want an edge for your college applications or future jobs?

Get an internship!


Here are 5 reasons:

1. A virtual internship will set you apart from other high school applicants

Tons of college and job applicants have babysat or mowed lawns for money. Instead, if you’ve done an internship doing similar work as the job or major you are applying for, well, that makes you unique. You’ll be an applicant with real-world experience and that is hard to come by.

2. You’ll know if a job or major is right for you

Internships offer a short-term experience to test the waters at a job. Don’t spend four years studying only to find out it’s not right for you! Don’t go through endless job interviews just to find out your new job is the daily torture test. Instead, get an internship and see if it’s everything you imagined.

3. You’ll be the expert

When you get a job or enter your major, your peers or co-workers will look to you for your expertise. That could mean a promotion, raise, or A+ grades. Just imagine what kind of prospects more than one internship could give you!

4. Virtual internships are a great way to network and make connections

Did you know that up to 80% of jobs are found through networking? Even if the company you intern for does not hire you right away, the relationships that you develop in your internship can help you land a job one day. You’d be surprised how an acquaintance will be willing to go the extra mile to help you get a job.

5. You’ll learn things in your virtual internship that you won’t learn in high school

Some things can only be learned by actually doing them. Regardless of whether or not you go to college, internships can teach you things you can’t learn in the classroom. Internships will give you hands-on experience and skills. They can even teach you about yourself – what are your strengths and weakness? How can you use them to get your next job?
