During the Fall 2022 semester I did a virtual global internship out of Italy. The company I worked for was MyTours in Italy where I made blog posts for their blog page. Many of the blog posts that I created were ranking the top tourist attractions in different parts of Italy, briefly discussing the history of historical figures within Italian culture or cities in Italy, and promoting some of the tours that MyTours in Italy has to offer. I learned a lot about Italian culture during my internship as well as being able to hone my blog making skills as well as promote these tours even though I have never been to Italy before. Overall, I recommend doing a virtual global internship to students who want to study abroad but cannot afford to while still being able to immerse in the country from the comfort of their own home.
Thinking back to the blog posts I’ve written for MyTours in Italy a couple of great ones come to mind. One that comes to mind is a post I did about the Leaning Tower of Pisa which briefly goes over the history of one of Italy’s most famous tourist attractions which also includes a tour from MyTours that you can book. Another post of mine that I’m proud of is a top 5 list of some of the beautiful artworks that you can see at the Accademia Gallery with tour included. There’s also a post I made about Michaelangelo which briefly goes over his life and also includes a tour where you can check out some of his greatest works. Out of all the blogs I made during my internship those three are some of my personal favorites.
