Finding employment can be difficult during a pandemic, especially if you don’t have much real-world work experience. If this sounds familiar, you may want to consider applying for a remote internship to gain confidence and to develop the valuable skills needed for you to excel in the workplace, from the comfort and privacy of your own home. If this interests you, here are three hot, remote internship positions available this year:

The internships are offered through Neighborhood Express, which provides free, healthy groceries, essential supplies, and social work supports for people living in food-insecure neighborhoods.
