Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Would I need to go to any physical office?
Given the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, the summer experience will be remote. As long as you have a computer and access to internet, you can be part of the WeServe Fellows Summer Internship. In case a physical meeting would be needed, safety measures would be put in place.
Would I be paid for this virtual internship?
WeServe Fellows is a voluntary and non-paid experience for college students that want to be exposed to growth opportunities, new environments and acquire new knowledge. The projects Fellows will conduct with micro-enterprises and nonprofits are also pro-bono. Fellows come out with a greater perspective of career interests and skills to help them succeed in their future job.
Can I choose the organization I want to work with?
The WeServe leadership team will match students’ skills with the needs of the organizations to be supported. Students won’t know the organizations they will be serving, until the first week of the program when assignments will be made.
Does becoming a WeServe Fellow mean I can work with V2A Consulting?
To become WeServe Fellows, students will pass through a screening process, similar to the initial steps used in the V2A Consulting recruiting process. Fellows who would like to be considered for a V2A position or professional internship, would need to go through the whole recruiting process. Of course, the virtual summer internship is a great way to show your strengths and skills to V2A personnel.
