Virtual Internships


virtual internship program

The Braathe Enterprises Virtual Internship Program is funded by companies seeking virtual professional assistance in marketing, research, strategy, human resources and a variety of other projects.  Projects are managed by Robert Braathe, CEO of Braathe Enterprises and professor of business at Saratoga College.

Internships run for 4-6 months, and students are encouraged to use the experience to fulfill academic requirements (for college credit) if possible.  As such, participation start and end dates are flexible and can be adjusted to meet your academic needs.

During your internship, you will work virtually for 5-10 hours per week on projects in the areas of marketing, web design, e-commerce, public relations, and project management while participating in a free online course sponsored by Saratoga College and building a network of colleagues from universities around the world.

While this is an unpaid opportunity, this internship program is designed to offer its participants hands-on experience, professional guidance and mentoring, as well as academic enrichment.  Student participants will work with companies on a variety of projects from start-ups to existing businesses, gain practical knowledge, and even lead intern teams in project planning and execution.

Current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates, are invited to apply for internship positions for the current and upcoming semester. Past participants include students from Cheyney University of PA, Skidmore College, University of Central Florida, University of Southern California, Yale, Penn State University, University of North Dakota, Kent State University, and many more.

All Participants Receive: Resume critiques, access to a free online course, weekly training calls with a mentor, a letter of recommendation, LinkedIn Recommendation, and recognition on Braathe Enterprises websites for their contributions.
