Virtual Internships uses years of experience to provide remote internships for 1000+ students in the wake of Covid-19 uncertainty.

Having been in the internships and study-abroad industry for over a decade, we know what students want, we know what universities want, and we know what businesses want.”

LONDON / PHILADELPHIA, PA, UK / USA, May 20, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Virtual Internships, In collaboration with sister company CRCC Asia, will be supporting over 1000 students this summer through their Virtual International Internship program. Together the two companies bring more than a decade of internship expertise and a dynamic and experienced staff. The impact of Covid-19 left many students stranded and uncertain of summer plans; therefore, Virtual Internships worked quickly to ensure valuable professional development opportunities were not lost.

“From January after seeing the news about China and other countries – prime locations where we had programs – we moved quickly. We realized this would have a big impact, and we needed to have a strategy. Universities also started coming to us independently and asking what we could do,” Daniel Nivern, Co-founder & CEO, Virtual Internships and CRCC Asia.

Over the past months, Virtual Internships has worked closely with universities, non-profits, and host companies to determine needs and how to best provide support. Since its launch in 2018, Virtual Internships has already supported hundreds of students in remote working opportunities including multiple university partnerships. These years of experience have allowed Virtual Internships to improve existing platforms and rapidly expand to accommodate this large number of students. The participants for summer 2020 are primarily from the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada, but there have been increasing student volumes from the Middle East and China, due to some forward-thinking organizations in that region.

“Having been in the internships and study-abroad industry for over a decade, we saw the inefficiencies and the barriers – we know what students want, we know what universities want, and we know what businesses want, yet there are very few services and companies that seem to take all those three factors into account,” Ed Holroyd Pearce, Co-founder and President, CRCC Asia & Virtual Internships.

For Virtual Internships and CRCC Asia, the goal remains to create a connected and dynamic labor market that facilitates cultural exchange and strengthens the professional development of young global talent. Virtual Internships was founded with the mission of removing access barriers in traditional internships and preparing students for the future, making it perfectly positioned to support this new cohort of students learning to navigate the working world during these uncertain times.
