Virtual Internship Opportunity at
the AUN Secretariat Office
Work GLOBAL
STAY Local

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ASEAN University Network (AUN) is now starting a virtual internship that will maintain the essence of what it means to work in a regional organization like the AUN.

The workforce of the future will be working in a digital workspace rather than a purely physical one. Whether we like it or not, COVID-19 is accelerating us towards that future. That is why it is more important than ever to develop the skills that are necessary to thrive in the digital work environment.

The virtual internship, much like this new digital workforce, will have very flexible hours. It will ask you to complete projects rather than sit in the office idly once your work is done for the day. With good time management, it will allow you to do this internship program while completing your full-time degree.

We would like to invite youth from ASEAN and beyond to join us in discovering what this future workforce looks like.

In addition to the current computer literacy requirements, we would like to also add the ability to use Zoom as a mandatory requirement as this is the primary communication tool used by the AUN.
