Just as companies and organizations have adapted to remote work and hiring over the last few months, they’ve also had to rethink their internship programs. But how will this new normal affect your internship search, and what you need to do as a candidate?
For starters, the entire interview process will likely be virtual, which means you won’t have the chance to impress hiring managers in person. You can also expect many internship opportunities to be remote—so competition may be fiercer now that students and new grads are not limited to applying for positions where they live.
The upshot? You’ll need to work a little harder—and smarter—to stand out as a candidate.
