Internships

Wordle: Teamwork

Are you looking for a virtual internship with a flexible schedule?  Do you have an average of 1 hour to 90 minutes per day to commit to working with an innovative company and entrepreneur?

Braathe Enterprises is now seeking virtual interns for Summer into Fall 2014, Fall 2014 into Spring 2015 and Spring and Summer 2015 and Summer into Fall 2015 for the BEVIP – Braathe Enterprises Virtual Internship Program

We also offer local internships for students in the Albany, New York and Saratoga Springs, New York areas.

Join students who have participated from colleges like Arizona State University, Baker College, Ohio State University, Skidmore College, Penn State University, Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, Roosevelt University, USC, UC Berkeley, Bentley College, Yale, Sacred Heart University, Southern New Hampshire University, SUNY Delhi and more.

The Braathe Enterprises Virtual Internship Program is funded by companies seeking virtual professional assistance in training, education, human resources, marketing, research, strategy, and a variety of other projects. The program is managed by Robert J. Braathe, MBA, a consultant and professor of business.

If you are a company seeking to have a project(s) or assignment(s) completed and willing to give the Virtual Internship Program a boost and an opportunity, contact us at projects@saratogacollege.com with your needs and project details.

Braathe Enterprises Virtual Internship Program was recently featured in an article on BusinessWeek.com – Virtual Internships In Rising Demand as well as the San Francisco Chronicle and Southern New Hampshire University’s website.

“Working with Robert was an excellent experience.  I enjoyed the flexibility of having a virtual internship while still having the same time frame, demand, and deadlines of a standard job.  Robert did a great job with communication and keeping me updated on what needed to be completed.  He also gave me the opportunity to spread my creative wings and allowed me design liberty on several projects. I am grateful to Robert for giving me the chance to work with him.  If you are looking for a fun and rewarding internship experience or if you are a business looking to get your name out there through websites and utilizing all of the advantages of social media, I highly recommend Robert Braathe, and Braathe Enterprises.”—Margaret Anderson, International Academy of Design and Technology

Virtual internships run for 5-6 months for 5-7 hours per week (start and dates are flexible if there are special circumstances with your school commitments).  Summer Internships run 3 months for 150-200 hours of work.

During your internship, you will work virtually for 5-10 hours per week on projects such as human resources, finance, marketing, web design, e-commerce, project management, and more.  The internship is designed to offer you the opportunity to learn things outside of the classroom about your major.

While there will be specific assignments required, during your internship, you will have the flexibility to make your own schedule, learn more about your major from a college professor, and participate in online discussions about business.

While this is an unpaid internship, you will gain valuable experience working with companies and on projects that range from startups to existing businesses, and gain knowledge you can bring back to your college or to your job.

Interns also receive resume critiques, access to a free online class, and weekly training calls with their mentor. At the end of the internship, students will receive a letter of recommendation and recognition on the Braathe Enterprises website for their contributions.
