Instead, her corporate career experiences led her to an epiphany that changed her vision for impacting businesses and career seekers worldwide.
Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, Creative Director, Julie had done it all in her corporate career.

It was an electric epiphany for Julie! Clouds rolled in, rain poured, lightening struck, she guzzled her coffee- this was Seattle after all. In that moment, Julie Braun became Super Julie!

Starting An Internship Program.
In short, virtual interns are just about anything you want them to be! The interns we select for our clients work from around the world through our virtual framework. This arrangement allows us to choose the best and most diverse talent from a global pool. Interns also furnish their own equipment, and currently demonstrate the skills you need for your company so that you’re up and running quickly.
In addition, virtual interns are compensated through the invaluable work experience you provide, rather than the cash in your pocket book. We tailor our internship program to meet the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
We want to ensure that virtual interns receive the learning opportunity that our clients wish to provide them and clients experience the skills set and fresh perspective interns bring to business!
For less than the cost of one full-time employee salary, we equip you with as much intern expertise and as many Virtual Interns as you require. Don’t pinch yourself just yet!
No one knows how to run your business and what it calls for better than you. Maybe you could use some extra hands to help with the gritty details. You have many talents, but there’s no need to be a graphic designer, search engine optimization specialist, web designer, AND business owner all-in-one! We do the résumé reviewing, interviewing, and portfolio perusal to find the most qualified candidates for your needs.
Virtual Interns can improve your marketing, get your website off the ground, and polish your brand with minimal time and financial investment. Not to mention, they free you of surprise costs like interview time, paid hours, additional training, and equipment expenses – extra sleep guaranteed.

First, close out of all of your other internship search sites. At SuperInterns.com, we have a one-and-done process: Just fill out the Contact Form to let us know more about your current interests and skills.
Then, relax. We contact you to further discuss your needs and goals so we can match you with an internship position. By taking the extra applications and guesswork involved in scoping positions out of the equation, we find you the ideal position, and our company clientele well-suited interns such as yourself.
Eventually we find you a fit (cue: “yippee!”, * sigh of relief *, and/or cheers). At this point you go through an interviewing process to meet your potential employer and find out more about the position straight from the source.
If the interview goes well, you put on your cape and accept your position. Congratulations on taking your next step in career planning! We train and support all of our company clientele in using our tried and true web-based programs. This means you get as much guidance as you need in using programs that allow you to work virtually by simplifying your ability to communicate, collaborate, and organize your work processes online.
The learning experience of interns is our top priority. This means you won’t be fetching coffee, stapling papers, or * cough * photocopying body parts.
We tailor our internship program to the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act to ensure that virtual interns receive learning opportunities that facilitate talent development, career planning, skills growth, portfolio building, and experience working in professional environments.
You determine and set goals for what you want to gain from your internship. Whether or not you are paid depends on the employer and company you work for. But regardless, SuperInterns.com has a system in place to make sure companies compensate you through the learning experiences YOU define.
All of the time you spend writing resumés, pounding out cover letters, and interviewing adds up. Maybe you spent 5 hours on the application process and didn’t get the position. That’s 5 episodes of your favorite TV show, a night out, 5 hours of work, a clean house, or another position you could have been pursuing! And how many positions have you applied for?
At SuperInterns.com, we get it: Career planning and pursuit is work, time, and money! Career coaching is an investment that saves you the hassle in the long run. With a few hours of coaching you will be ready and prepared to distinguish yourself from competing applicants, apply more efficient and effectively, streamline your career planning, and nail an interview.
