Your Virtual Experience

The Experience

Once you apply and submit your $90 deposit, you’ll have a Skype interview with your CIS Abroad Program Enrollment Coordinator to learn more about your work experience and goals so we can start looking for the best-fit internship placement for you. We’ll also make sure you get pre-departure support to ensure you’re feeling great about your virtual experience. 

Online seminars are a core part of your virtual internship. CIS Abroad teaching assistants, under the supervision of the Vice President of Academic Affairs, provide ongoing support, guidance, and reflection sessions that help you understand your work experience in a cross-cultural context.

About Our Partner

HOST ORGANIZATION SUPERVISOR CHECK-INS

Look forward to “face-to-face” meetings with your host organization supervisor at least once a week to ensure you’re on the same page and get additional feedback and direction on your project. This will also help you practice key skills like facilitating a remote meeting and working with remote colleagues in a cross-cultural setting. Additional, daily communication with your supervisors is expected – you’re already a pro at technology platforms, so this will be second nature to you.

Itinerary

Whether you are taking this internship for credit or not, online seminars are a core part of your virtual internship. We have an itinerary planned for you; from a cultural orientation before you start working, to how to best work remotely in the country and city you chose, to meeting our site directors around the globe, to how to make sense of it all and know what skills you gained. All in six weeks! 

See below for the 7 online seminars over your 6 week experience. Check out the Academics tab for our Virtual Global Internship course syllabus which includes more details on each seminar.

4. INTERNSHIP SEMINAR SERIES: BUILD YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

This online seminar offers an opportunity to reflect on your personal drivers, values, and how you want to be perceived as a professional entering the workforce.

5. INTERNSHIP SEMINAR SERIES: WORKING ACROSS CULTURES

To be successful in navigating both international and domestic cultural differences, you need an understanding of what culture is, how it affects your interactions with others, and what skills you must develop in order to be successful intercultural leaders.

6. CROSS-CULTURAL DEBRIEFS

CIS Abroad Site Directors will facilitate live cross-cultural debriefing sessions each week

7. POST-PROGRAM SEMINAR: OWN YOUR CAREER

You will be guided through an individual reflection to help you articulate your experience in order to increase employability.
