â€œOver the last four years I have had the opportunity to intern at some amazing companies in a variety of fields. I recently got involved in social media but saw that a lot of the companies I wanted to intern for were based in New York or San Francisco. I wanted to gain valuable career-based experience, but I did not have the money, resources, or time. After looking through some job boards I found a great â€œvirtualâ€ internship that I could do based in New York, from the comfort of my own home that fit into my schedule. I continued to search for other virtual internships, but I could not find a website that catered directly to this market. Thus, CyberInterns.com was born!â€ â€“ Talan Torriero Founder of Cyber Interns
With a third of ALL internships now being â€œvirtualâ€, this market is going to rapidly increase. Our hope is to constantly build the site to create a suitable environment for employers and interns to interact.
