General Internship Questions
(Click a question to view the answer.)
Is this remote?
Yes, all of our internships are 100% remote, and our team is distributed around the world.
Is there a maximum weekly commitment?
We only ever require the minimum hours each week, but you have the option to work more if you like. However, to promote balance, we have a "soft cap" of eight hours per week; while you can work beyond that if you choose, and it is compensated the same as usual, that additional time won't be counted towards the 240-hour target.
I'm concerned about school/work/life balance.
Your academic and personal life are very important! Part of being industry-ready is knowing how to balance. Your internship supervisor can help you with scheduling, planning, and other life skills to aid you in that.
Why do you have such a strict interview/screening process?
Two reasons. First, since we're limited in how many interns we can support at a time, we want to ensure this opportunity is open to those individuals who will make the most of it.
Second, since we're all about career preparation, we want to provide an interview process as rigorous as any you'd encounter in the industry. In many cases, we provide feedback to applicants on how they can interview better, even if we choose not to bring them on!
How often do we have video chat meetings?
Each team usually meets once a week at a regular time. These are a vital part of our team collaboration. These are scheduled around everyone's availability as much as possible.
In addition, you will have regular meetings with your internship supervisor, typically every other week (less as time goes on.)
I'm not certain what exactly I want to do.
That's part of the purpose of an internship. You will have the opportunity to try things out and make discoveries about your interests and abilities.
What if I'm not in the United States?
We offer a Community Internship for international applicants.
