Virtual work experience is becoming increasingly popular. It gives students from anywhere in the country the chance to experience working in a place they might not have had the option to before, and during the time when it is hard to visit face to face, this is an essential way to discover career options.
We have gathered some virtual work experience resources for you to discover.
