1. Do not Forget there are Plenty of Willing Interns

Yes, because there are no geographical restrictions, there will be a humungous number of fellow interns preying the one you want. With such a lean competition, bagging a Virtual Internship can be tough. So, you might want to apply to more than one gig if you really are willing to stay home and work.

2. Do not Slack off in your Virtual Internship

No, please do not do that. Not only it is going to surface a terrible impression of your working, but it is so uncool. For working efficiently in a Virtual Internship (or any), you must manage your work and be hell bent on practising timeliness.

3. Don’t assume it to be an easy task

Just because you don’t have to report to your supervisor regarding every sigh you breathe in the office, doesn’t mean you can assume you will be at ease if you opt for a work from home. Work from home has its own critical nuances which you should respect.

4. Don’t take up more than you can handle

This applies for all internships and practically everything in life. An overkill is a bad option. Because its Virtual Internships, do not take up more work than you can complete as you probably are not going to lock in fixed hours to do the assigned work (which is why you opted for a VI in the first place!)

5. Do not Undervalue or Underestimate your Internship

Only because you do not have to commute the office every day, doesn’t imply you should assume your job is menial of insignificant. Apply for Virtual Internships that you can happily work on, do it with your best efforts. Be happy that at least you don’t have to kill animals for your internship!
