The internship at Nubis Aviation Training has developed my business, digital marketing and written skills. It has been great to work and collaborate with a small team and take on responsibility for developing an area of the company,” says OU student Lily Beach, Online Marketing and Public Relations Intern.
Lily’s experience shows how you can gain valuable professional experience by doing a ‘virtual internship’, i.e. working from home.
Claudio Marturano, founder of Nubis Aviation Training and OU graduate, understands very well why ‘virtual’ internships are a perfect way for many OU students to gain the professional experience they need. Talking about why employers really value OU students and graduates, he says:
“The level of commitment, mental strength and self-awareness of task management needed for an individual to better themselves is almost guaranteed from an OU student. Therefore, from an employer’s perspective, when looking for candidates that will help your organisation succeed, the OU is an invaluable source of talent.”
