With social distancing, lockdowns and stay-at-home orders in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are finding creative ways to do their jobs remotely. Now students have the opportunity to do the same with internships, thanks to partnerships established by the Salisbury Center for Career, Professional and Experiential Education.
Jeremy Bamberg ’11, co-founder of Factory, is offering internships in marketing and business development. Factory builds and operates campuses for technology companies and startups in Europe, including Silicon Allee — a long-time supporter of the Berlin technology community — which runs a campus and an early-stage investment fund and produces online media.
“We’re looking for the right kind of individuals who are up for making the best out of the situation,” says Bamberg. Noting that internships often focus on concrete, project-based work, he believes this is the perfect time to take them remote. “Our opportunities will be a good fit for independent, hard-working, entrepreneurial thinkers with strong writing, communication and critical thinking skills,” he says.
Internships with Factory and Silicon Allee include writing content about office design, architecture, startups and tech across Europe, as well as social media, design and supporting management. To view available remote internships with Factory and Silicon Allee, visit Handshake.
Parker Dewey is also connecting students with short-term, paid, professional remote assignments called micro-internships. Brandi Ferrara, director of the Salisbury Center, explains that micro-internships “allow students to demonstrate their skills, explore career paths and develop their professional networks.” These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and students can be selected for multiple micro-internships.
Opportunities through Parker Dewey are available here. New micro-internships are posted daily.
Alums interested in hosting remote internships should contact Brandi Ferrara at 315-781-3514 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
