Internship and training online

There is a lot of organizations and companies that offer internship programmes online. Of course, you usually do not get paid for that, but the work you need to do won’t take as much time compared to a standard internship. A big plus – as an online intern, you don’t have to make a coffee for your boss.

One of the platforms that offer digital apprenticeships is GenM. It’s a great tool that offers access to companies and entrepreneurs around the world but also enables learning marketing skills for free. It’s a great option for students or people who want to change their careers. After uploading your resume, you’ll get matched with the companies that share the same values and interests. Completing your apprenticeship will take 3 months (around 10 hours per week).

Another way to get some new skills are courses offered by Komvux, which offers not only language classes, but also free-standing courses within different areas. Sometimes there is a possibility to study them online.

Apps that will teach you (almost) everything
