Virtual internships are the perfect way to leverage on your corporate working opportunity from the comfort of your home or wherever you are.

When can I take up the program?
You can take the Glocal Corporate Internship Program anytime of the year as per your availability.
Do I need to know the local language?
No, you do not need to know the local language! We always find companies that are comfortable with conversing in a global language (English in particular) so that it’s easier for the intern as well as the company to discuss, mentor and implement the project ideas with your assigned roles and responsibilities.
What companies do you partner with?
We keep in mind that this should be a learning experience for the intern. So, we always find companies which can mentor our interns and provide an enriching experience. From big corporations to start-ups, whichever supports your goal better is available from our end!
I cannot give my whole day to the virtual corporate internship work, is there flexibility in working hours?
While you choose to opt for the program, you may let the team know how many hours you would be available per week to finish the work, you can opt for 20-30-40 hours, and then you would have to commit to the working hours you are choosing. Your corporate mentor would be informed about the same in advance and they would be giving your learning experience, office work assignments in accordance for you to give the number of hours you have opted to work for.
Are these internships paid?
No, we do not provide paid virtual internships upto 3 months or shorter duration. For more than 3 months or longer duration we do offer in many cases paid internship. The reason being that is twofold: One, we provide learning experiences, we want you to go to companies that are willing to help you out and mentor you! Secondly, our objective is to deliver this experience to maximum students and best support them with learning in their field of interest and keeping any stipend in place limits our team to achieve our vision for the students. However, we do have students that get stipends at the end of their internship period if the company really likes their work! If a company offers you any stipend or a gift you should humbly accept but should not opt for a pre-mindset of getting a stipend/gift by the end of internship. Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more enriching & value driven experiences as international internships. Nevertheless, in cases, some interns can and do receive remuneration while other students do receive in-kind rewards and recognitions from their respective organizations of internships depending upon their performance, etc. However, our team does not make payment of stipend a priority when finalizing internship in the domain of student's element of interest and we therefore recommend that you assume the internships of students will be unpaid for 3 months or shorter duration.
Is there a minimum age to attend corporate internships?
Yes, you need to be at least 16+ years old.
