About Virtual Internships About Virtual Internships

What are virtual internships?

A virtual internship is similar to an in-person internship, except that it’s designed to be offered entirely online or remotely. The intern gains valuable experience while working from a remote location, and work hours are often more flexible. Students are in regular contact with the supervisor/team via virtual methods such as video call, phone call, email and messaging platforms.

What are micro-internships?

Micro-Internships are short-term, professional assignments that enable students to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build their networks. Unlike traditional internships, micro-internships can take place year-round, typically ranging from 5 to 40 hours of work, and projects are due between one week and one month after they are initiated.

What are some policies and procedures that should be part of an effective online internship?


  1. Complete Employer Profile: To host an online internship through Cal Poly, the host must have an established and verified business or organization. This involves documenting that the host has a physical location, a working website, a tax ID number, and contact information that is valid and up-to-date.


  1. Student Learning: The online internship experience must be beneficial for the student and their professional development. If an internship (or co-op) is to be completed for academic credit toward the student’s degree, the student and employer should work with the relevant academic department to ensure the learning experiences are the equivalent to being in a classroom or other formal academic learning situation and the proper documents are completed before starting the internship.

What are the recruiting guidelines?

Employers seeking to recruit Cal Poly students must adhere to Equal Employment Opportunity laws and the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Employment Professionals. Under FERPA, Cal Poly prohibits the disclosure of a student's protected information to third parties. Cal Poly Career Services makes its services available to employers who do not unlawfully discriminate in the selection of employees on the basis of national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other basis prohibited by applicable law.

How do I post a job or internship that will offered remotely?

To post virtual internships on MustangJobs, the appropriate way to create your posting is:

  • Just below the Job Description section, you will see Remote/On-Site options.
