Regardless of the makeup of your internship tasks, you’ll be collaborating closely with an experienced supervisor to deliver innovative IT solutions. You’ll gain experience using modern software programs and tools such as Java and Flex, developing and optimizing features that satisfy the strategic objectives of your placement company.

Your specific internship activities will vary according to your experience, skill set and interests. Short-term remote interns can expect to have an introductory experience, as it is standard for every intern to spend time establishing foundations to build upon. Longer-term internship assignments allow participants to become more deeply involved in projects and make a greater contribution.

As a remote IT intern, you’ll be in regular contact with your supervisor through emails and online meetings, where you’ll receive feedback, collaborate on ideas and solutions, and provide updates on ongoing projects.

This internship is conducted in English, or in Spanish by agreement with your internship supervisor. Online Spanish language lessons can be arranged in conjunction with your remote internship if you’d like to further develop your skills.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.

What recent interns said about their experience

Kazuhisa Noguchi
September 2020

At first, I was nervous about opening the door of professionalism. However, my worries disappeared faster than I predicted. The first week of my internship involved collaboration with a former engineering intern from the United States. Collaborating together was the best and brightest moment I have ever had during programming. Usually, I have done individual coding alone, so the opportunity to collaborate helped me to learn about the importance of team development and sharing knowledge with others. Participating in an online internship as a Japanese student was a meaningful experience. I was surprised that not only local Spanish engineers, but also American engineers, work equally with code, so you can “code-speak” with engineers from all over the world. During the virtual internship, I gained my first experience using GitLab instead of GitHub and I received a lot of practical and applied advice. Learning from the wisdom of other engineers, not just using your knowledge, was an important experience for me. I also gained experience on Android application development using Android Studio. The remote internship provided me with the freedom to dedicate the time required to deepen my proficiencies.
