Are online internships worth it? What are the pros and cons?

4 Answers
I find online internships are totally worth it. It helps you to discipline yourself and hold yourself responsible for your own time and schedule. With online internships, like online classes, you have to learn how to balance your time effectively and be responsible for your own work and time.
Yes, if you want to stay where you are and/or if you are able to manage more than one internship at a time. It is totally worth it. But you also must be skilled at using email, social media, WhatsApp and so forth and be able to manage your time.
Yes, it's definitely worth it! Pros: you can work from anywhere! Cons: you'll have to get used to communicating through online methods only.
Online internships open up a lot more doors. You aren't confined to just the internships at a location convenient enough for you to get to. They're also good for someone with a busy schedule because you can pick your own work hours! However, you MUST stay organized and manage your time well. One of the bigger cons is communication with supervisors--your main modes of communication will be phone or email, but not all supervisors are the best at quick responses.
