Subject: Will you work from home?

FYI: I hate this song. But I thought the title and gif would get some attention.

The world is changing people and the idea of working in a bland office 9-6 (Sorry Dolly Parton, no one works 9-5) is a thing of the past. You can now freelance, work from home, work part-time in an office and the rest remotely, you can work over Skype or from a beach bed in the Bahamas (this is how I imagine travel bloggers to work)

What I'm trying to say is, if this style of work is accessible for people in full-time employment, it 100% means that internships can also be completed this way. Hey! I have hired interns from the north of England that cant travel, therefore, they have worked from home. This is a great, inexpensive way of getting experience while sitting in your pj's looking like shit. 

What I will say is, be prepared for a lot of Skype or phone call interaction. You will still have to communicate well and stick to deadlines... but it doesn't mean it can't be done.

Here is a great article on working from home:

I would always still contact a brand or company who are looking for someone to join their team offer your services but from a remote location and show them how it can work for both of you.

Let me know how you get on or If you want any words of encouragement.

Kind regards,

The Intern
