REMOTE INTERNSHIPS, HOW TO GET ONE? HOW TO WORK ONLINE? 

Due to recent events and the Coronavirus pandemic, we have accelerated one of our goals for the upcoming months, and we have implemented the possibility for students to do their internships online, from home, with enough quality and content to be just as valuable as an in-person internship. That is why we are firmly committed to developing our remote internships program. We have already around 50 companies that have availed themselves of this modality and it is already generating fantastic results. In this sense, we want to contribute our grain of sand and knowledge in the matter to suggest some ideas, together with our partner universities, who are supporting this initiative as a potential solution to the end of the school year.

Tips and benefits of doing an online internship

a) What type of tasks can be done remotely?

At Spain Internship, after consulting with many of our customers, we have compiled a list of potential tasks to do online.

1.- Development of the internationalization and benchmarking strategy. Undoubtedly, in order to develop any international market, people need to make it happen. Many of our clients have accessed international talent, which, over time, has helped them to enter new markets and consolidate the growth of international sales. Updating databases, searching for international partners, accessing new distributors, preparation for international fairs, analysis of international regulations, and agreements with international suppliers are some specific actions that can help any company to develop its internationalisation processes. Right now is a perfect time to conduct market research.

2.- SEO. The visibility of our companies on the internet depends on many aspects: the content, the languages ​​in which the website is accessible, the channels through which we communicate with customers, or the search engine algorithms, among many other factors. In this sense, many of our clients have been able to substantially improve the positioning of their websites in various languages, thus bringing together new users and clients. As it is a task that has a long-term effect, addressing this task today could deliver excellent results in upcoming months.

3.- Programming. International students studying technological development programmes are the ones using more everyday online working tools. 

4. Design. Creating web designs, graphic design work, and tasks of this nature, which do not require a personal presence in the company, can be enabled through basic follow-up meetings and brainstorming to share ideas.

5. Others. Basically, any task which can be done online, which will positively revert to the company in the medium term, should be addressed now.

b) Quality remote internships, how can I manage these internships online, obtain results for my company and also offer a good educational experience to students?

1. Develop and demand a good training plan. Training is the most fundamental part of any internship. Keep in mind that it is what the students are going to take with them and it is key for completing tasks properly. Ideally, students would have task handbooks as well as video tutorials available online. We recommend the "atubecatcher" tool, that allows you to make videos explaining the procedures in a simple way whilst recording your own screen.

2. Set and organize tasks properly. Tasks must be clear, concise, concrete and have a deadline. We must bear in mind that students often lack professional experience, so offering clear, concrete, and concise tasks with deadlines can be a very interesting option. At Spain Internship, we use the Trello tool, www.trello.com, for organising tasks, and we advise both students and companies to use it.

3. Communicate fluently We understand that it is not possible for any of you to be connected by video call 8 hours a day, so we recommend the use of tools such as Slack for communication management and subsequent monitoring.

4. Make weekly reviews. 

Remote internships are becoming increasingly popular and will be key in the future, so we fully support students and companies who are willing to do this type of placement.
