Ruchita Jain was working as a software application developer in a reputed company. Being good at her work, she was earning herself a handsome salary. She continued her job after getting married but, after two years, when she had her son, she decided to take a break from her career to look after him. For two years, she happily took care of her child but this transition of her, from being a self-dependent woman to a homemaker took a toll on her self-confidence. When her son started going to a play school, she could find some free time daily which she started utilizing to read, write, and learn. Later she got to know about virtual internships and started applying to them, after facing a few rejections she was selected for one. After that she never turned back, she did more internships along with taking care of her son and discovered her lost confidence and self-worth.

In India, every year, millions of women like Ruchita take a career break due to added responsibilities of getting married or having a child. Many a time a break meant for a few months stretches up to many years. And, with the continuously prolonging breaks, they become more and more distant from their professional selves. What if there was a way to bridge this distance along with fulfilling your responsibilities as a wife and mother? Well, there is a way that can make your career break productive and keep you near your professional life.

To help you understand better how virtual internships can help you make the most out of your break, below listed are a few points highlighting the benefits of pursuing one:

Convenience in working: The major pro of doing a virtual internship is that it provides you with the flexibility in terms of time and commitment. Since you won’t have to be physically present for the job, this will enable you to work as per your convenience and keep you tension free. And thus, doing these virtual internships will keep your confidence up and give you a sense of self-worth while you won’t be able to pursue your profession.

Keep you in touch with the industry: Most of the companies don’t allow work from home or other flexible work options to their employees, which in the end, forces many women to quit their jobs as they need to handle some new responsibilities at home. In such cases, to keep up with the industry trends and skills, you can take up virtual internships.

A chance to explore new opportunities: For some job profiles, it is not feasible to work remotely. Here, you can explore some new areas through internships without much work pressure. Who knows you might even discover your true passion which you were not able to explore and pursue before because of your commitments to your job.

Added income: With added responsibilities come new expenses and quitting your job at the same time might weigh on the economic setting of your home. Considering most of the virtual internships come with a stipend, doing one can enable you to contribute to the financials of your home and give you a sense of self-dependence.

If you are already on a career break or are planning to take one, pursuing a few virtual internships during the time will help you stay up-to-date with the advancing technologies and industry trends, and ultimately help you ease back into your professional life when you decide to.
