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.
