There are differences between normal internships and virtual internships, as listed below:

1. There is a lot of flexibility in virtual internships because you can sit anywhere in the world and work for a global company or organisation. With normal internships, you are required to be in the office or on site to deliver the work with a company in your city.

2. One advantage with an office internship is that you meet many people face-to-face and get to know different cultures and working styles. However, with virtual internships and online collaboration tools like TEAMS and Slack, you can still get this experience!

3. Another difference between virtual internships and office internships is that you don’t have to commute from one place to another when doing virtual internships. Your internship can be completed any where in the world from your home!

4. A key difference between virtual internships and office-based internships is the cost. When you do an office internship, you will have travel costs to cover and you will spend more time travelling to the office.

5. The availability of virtual internships is higher than normal internships because working in a normal internship requires you to work 9-5 in the office. Whereas, with virtual internships you can choose to complete your placement with a company in a different state, city or even country! There are many more opportunities for remote or virtual internships.
