Virtual internships offer real-world experience
Spark Scholar Jess Vandermeer is one of those who stepped up to take part. She said the projects excited her from the start because they were so meaningful.
The interns benefited from a programme that Talent Solutions designed with leading pedagogical principles and strong industry engagement.
Over three weeks, Intern teams are guided by business Mentors who offer valuable feedback and advice.
“We use a few different channels to stay in touch with messaging and regular meetings. We also assign ourselves tasks and milestones in preparation of delivering our final pitch.”
Jess found her team naturally settled into roles and responsibilities that allowed their skills to shine. “Between us, everyone has something they’re particularly good at we all have a chance to play to our strengths.”
Although the teams focused on their final presentation, the benefits of the Internship will be long-reaching. Not only will these interns make a worthy addition to their CVs, they’ll also take forward new connections and something which can help differentiate them in the employment market.
