  • I actually have a college student remotely interning for me right now, and there are def pros and cons to it. We have daily zoom meetings, use google docs to collaborate, and chat over slack/what’sapp, so no shortage in terms of tools to work together. At the same time, you def loose a bit of that “personal” touch since we’ve never met f2f, along with the experience (in my intern’s case) of working in a different city/state/country. But since we’re in different zip codes, I have him work on things while I’m asleep and then can review them in the morning. It just makes it even more important to provide clear directions since I may not be accessible to answer questions during all his working hours. At the end of the day, I think it’s def doable to have internships remote, but believe you do lose out on a lot of the “soft skills/experience” that would’ve come with it. To me, these skills may be even more essential than the hard skill experience interns come away with at the end of an internship.
