In a typical summer, thousands of Princeton students are scattered across the country and around the globe for internships that enrich their academic focus, provide valuable work experience, jumpstart their professional network and expand their worldview.The pandemic changed all that, taking in-person internships off the table.Enter the virtual internship. This summer, the University — including academic departments and programs, the Pace Center, Career Services, alumni and others — helped students pivot from their original plans to a wide variety of internships that are 100% digital. 

Among the six students interviewed are Gabriel Duguay ’22, a certificate student in the Program in Humanistic Studies whose internship was supported by the Program in Canadian Studies’ Student Internships in Canada, and Jimin Kang ’21, a certificate student in the Program in Journalism who is a recipient of a Ferris Summer Grant for Student Internships in Journalism.
