How do I get an internship online in the Philippines?

I'm a grade 10 student and i really want to have experience on interning or maybe just volunteering. It doesn't matter if it's paid or not.

Thank you comment icon Hi! Usually schools probide an on the job training program when you reach senior high school. They also offer you options of your interested field so they can match you. It would help if you inquire about this to your adviser. Hope this helps. Dr. Reena Riza de Guzman

Juan Lorenzo’s Answer

Hi Juls,

There are a lot of companies that offer internship programs for undergraduate students here in the Philippines. You can search for roles in online job search platforms or visit company websites and head to their career page and try to look for internship roles that you are intereted in. Do keep in mind that some internship roles require students who are studying courses related to the role.

As for volunteering, you might want to try different organizations that operate with a certain cause, like social welfare groups, animal welfare groups, or different church organizations, which ever you feel like you'd learn from. You can find volunteer work from different organization websites which you can search by first understanding what cause you'd like to follow.

Good luck and Regards!

Hi Juls,

I hope you are doing great, when it comes to internship usually your school has partnership with several companies that you can choose on. You may ask for assistance from your school what are the companies or establishments that your school are partner with. It might be easier or you and the school can give recommendation letter to that company or establishments.

However you may also check online from the website of this companies, since we live in a modern technology. You may submit an email that you are interested in doing a internship in the company you are interested into, and attached your resume or curriculum vitae. As the others also said, i will recommend as well to search internship programs to the following websites:

https://www.edukasyon.ph/
https://www.youthcolab.org/
https://www.linkedin.com/


I hope this help. You are doing great! take care!

Gerard’s Answer

I guess internships and volunteering are for college students or 18 years old. For internships (when you reach 18 years old), you could find opportunities on job sites (jobstreet, indeed, kalibrr, and monster). For volunteering (under 18 years old), you could volunteer on school organizations, church organizations, non-governmental organizations as student volunteer (https://operationblessing.ph/), and youth organizations as youth volunteer between 15 to 18 years old (https://www.pnvsca.gov.ph/?page_id=255).

Gerard recommends the following next steps:

Mike’s Answer

While I generally agree with portions of the previous answers posted here, like companies generally offering internships to college-graduate-candidates only, I believe you can still carve out opportunities that are similar to an internship but may not necessarily be guaranteed (or seen) as one. I take it you are already at least sixteen (16) years of age. If yes, then sign up on LinkedIn so that you can showcase your volunteer work there. In my opinion, volunteering generally trumps internships.

Which Academic Track do you wish to pursue in Senior High? ABM, HUMSS, or STEM? Reason I ask is that this will dictate your choices in filtering out what types of volunteer work you wish to put your time & effort in, and ultimately complement your strand of study.

If you're looking for online opportunities that allow you to showcase what you've done, I would suggest platforms like VolunteerMatch, CatchaFire (must be 18yrs old), or MeaningfulWork.

Hope this helps. ~M

Rem’s Answer

Hey Juls,

It's cool that you're interested in gaining experience through internships and volunteering. There's heaps of opportunities you can find online nowadays. You just have to figure out the industry that you'd like to work in (internships) or the causes that you support (volunteering). Once you know these two, you can start searching for companies or non-profits that will match your interests.

Like what Juan said, you can search for roles in job search platforms (in JobStreet, Kalibrr, Indeed) or visit company websites and head to their career page and try to look for internship opportunities that you are interested in. Although, most of the company internships offered are usually for university students.

If you won't be able to find internships, you can always start with volunteering. May it be through non-profits, socio-civic organizations, start ups or events.

Here are some links that might help:

Darwin’s Answer

Hi Juls,

From what I've seen here, I don't think most companies would take on a grade 10 student for an internship since if they do have internship programs, they're usually allocated for college students.

What you can do is link up with NGOs, or civic organizations with youth membership and volunteer your time there. The student's school might also have volunteering opportunities, so you could talk to your outreach coordinator.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Darwin

Sheena’s Answer

Hi Juls, I think it's great that you're looking into doing intership or volunteer work, the first 2 jobs I did were internships too, and I carry a life lesson from my first internship up to this day.

I understand that most formal internship programmes available locally are catered to college/university students, and most have a minimum age requirement such as being at least 18, as mentioned in some of the previous answers to this post.

My suggestions are below. Good luck with your search!

Sheena recommends the following next steps:

Search, search, search - try to look up available volunteer or internship opportunities, you might find something that matches what you're looking for
Search again - for companies that you might be interested in, and reach out to them to ask
Search some more - if you were initially targetting certain companies, try other types of organisations (e.g., if you were looking at corporate companies at first, maybe try contacting NGOs or government offices)
*Ask around - for some, we are comfortable with discussing this with friends, relatives, etc. and we can always try and ask if they know of some place who might be able to offer a position; for others who are not comfortable discussing this, my suggestion is to do the searches and reaching out

Hi Juls! You may also try directly reaching out to companies that operate in the industry of your choice and ask them if they offer internship programs online. With the changing landscape in the world of work, you'll be able to find quite a few that would actually allow you to complete your internship remotely. Best of luck!
