About SIT Virtual Internships Abroad

You’ll get real-world experience in an international workplace. You’ll enhance your skills and become part of the wide network of community organizations, activists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and academics connected to SIT programs. Build your résumé and get a head start on your career. Gain hands-on experience, develop new skills, and start building a global professional network. SIT internships connect with a critical global issue. You will examine an issue through coursework and speakers; then you’ll remote in to do a real-world internship in that area. You’ll have reflective discussions throughout your internship to gain a deeper understanding of local realities and diverse worldviews.
