Apart from suiting college students with hectic schedules, virtual internships can be ideal for nontraditional students such as Heidi Johnston, 33, a business and marketing major at Southern New Hampshire University, who also holds down a full-time job at AAA Northern New England.

For the past four months, Johnston has been doing market research and social media for Braathe Enterprises, a consulting firm that works with small and midsized businesses. She does the work late at night, when she gets home from school, or in the morning before work.

"I did have some hesitation at first about doing a virtual internship, but I absolutely got everything I expected out of it - and probably a little more," says Johnston, who will point to the experience when she applies for marketing jobs next fall. Visit the SF Chronicle to read the full story.
