Remote interns get the added benefit of improving communication skills, as you’ll be regularly liaising with people in Spain via email and online conferences. Virtual interns maintain regular contact with their supervisor via online meetings and emails, receiving updates and feedback on your internship tasks. You’ll contribute according to an agreed schedule that works for you. However, there will be times when you need to be available for meetings during office hours in Spain. Therefore, you should compare the time-zone in Spain to your own and ensure you’ll have the flexibility to do this.
