Become a Global Experiences Virtual Employer

Global Experiences launched GE Virtuoso, virtual international internships programs, in March 2020. We used our many years of experience in developing face-to-face internships and created a virtual product so that many more employers can benefit from the transformative experience of hosting an intern.

What are the benefits of hosting a Virtual International Intern?

Hosting a virtual intern is a great way to integrate an intern into your company whilst giving the intern valuable experience at the same time.

  • A virtual intern gives you all of the benefits with none of the challenges. We undertake the recruit and vetting of an intern and all an employer has to do is interview and provide them with a comprehensive work plan.

  • A virtual intern can provide excellent support and knowledge whilst themselves applying the theoretical learning in a practical context.

  • The flexible nature of virtual internships means that there is greater potential to fit with your work schedule.

GE Virtuoso is part of our green initiative, offering the chance for international experience without damaging the environment.

What can I ask a Virtual Intern to do?

Here are some of the sample tasks/projects that companies are requesting a intern to support with:

  • Project design and management of IT projects for a software company adapting a product for a client
  • Design of a US marketing campaign for a homeware product.
  • Graphic design project for a consultancy firm
  • Management support and logistics with a transport firm
  • Translation and editing for a bilingual publication
  • Online teaching with a virtual school

As you can see there are many tasks/projects that are open to virtual internships.

Virtual Intern Testimonials

"The staff at Global Experiences were all great! They were so helpful during the process before, during and after my internship program. It is thanks to this internship program that I was able to gain valuable experience abroad virtually and learn not only about other fields of interest regarding my degree but also more about myself. With the experience I have gained working with several employers, I am better prepared for my career than I was before."
- Bennet A.

"Going into my internship, I was pretty nervous. I am majoring in Psychology, and there are few opportunities to get experience. However, Global Experiences was able to find me a great research opportunity with a professor in Ireland. The internship itself was amazing, and I learned so much! However, Global Experiences made the internship so much better. Through career development and different tools to enhance my internship and future careers, I feel much more prepared to take on the future!"
- Jennifer T.
