Convert your current experience or create your own:
- Already offered an in-person internship? Ask your employer if it can be converted into a remote experience. See article below on making the most of a remote internship.*
- Create your own by contacting an organization to ask if a posted internship can be done remotely or if the organization has projects (think research, writing, data analysis, social media, and more) you can work on from home in order to gain experience while helping them achieve their goals.
