5 Advantages of Joining Remote Internship
A lazy afternoon on Sunday, I wrote this blog from a small and beautiful country, Nepal. As soon as I started writing, I felt what an honor it has been working with people from different cultures, countries, and backgrounds. As an intern in LSBC, I was not only fortunate to learn from my seniors and industry professionals, I was connecting with people from various corners of the world. The advancement of technology has connected hundreds of employees in just one small virtual workplace. There might be questions in your head, what have I to gain when I join a remote internship? Why don’t I lay it out for you? Here are five advantages to joining a remote internship.
1) Better Work-Life Balance
Work-life balance is one advantage that always comes to mind first when considering remote work. Many remote jobs come with flexible schedules, which means workers can start early and end early as they choose, as long as their work is completed. This influence over your work schedule can be crucial in filling your personal life needs. Especially for Students, who have to attend their regular sessions at college. Attending doctor’s appointments, running to the store to grab some groceries, can all be done a little more easily when you are at home. This combination of your working life with your personal life will help you create some harmony.
2) You’ll Save Money
You can see an obvious change in your bank account if you don’t have to bear the cost of traveling. According to Global Workplace Analytics, people who work from home half time can save between $2,000 to $6,500 a year. You don’t have to worry about gas, car maintenance, parking cost, and others. You will no longer need to push yourself into a suit and polish shoes if that is not your style. You can also save a few bucks on food since you’ll easily whip your own launch and coffee.
3) You’ll Become More Independent
Since you don’t have teammates just a few feet away or a business team on the first floor, you can gain the opportunity to try your own answers and become more involved in discovering that you need on your own. Of course, you will have support from your teammates, if you ask them. Instead of doing so, you can do a quick Google Search and read journals to find answers yourself as quickly as possible. And you can also end up with those skills simply because you need them to function well remotely.
4) Exchange of Culture
The world is a mixture of different ethnicity, religion, social forms, festivals, and social groups. “Increasing diversity in the workforce can improve company culture as well as the bottom line.” Remote working not only introduces a virtual workplace but connects with people of different cultures, which you might have never heard of. Remote working helps you understand festivals people celebrate in Nepal, travel destinations in Paris, the natural beauty of Switzerland, bullfighting of Spain and many more.
5) Your office can be anywhere
Remote working does not mean you have to work from home. You can work at the coffee shop near your home. You can take care of your job if you are on vacation in Bali with your friends. Thanks to Laptop’s long-lasting battery life and advanced smartphone, you can work enjoying every moment of your life. Make sure you are not in the front seat driving,
The spread of coronavirus has resulted in thousands of employees working from home. I think you should probably give a shot at a remote internship or job instead of waiting for a long time (like I used to do).

Stay safe and take care of yourself.
