CAP Premier: Virtual Internship Opportunities for Graduate Students

Shorelight is excited to offer remote internship opportunities to graduate students—a new way to gain real-world experience and career skills with US companies.

We are proud to announce the launch of CAP Premier, a virtual internship program designed to help international graduate students gain valuable work experience for their resumes. Internships are temporary workplace training programs, available to university students for a predetermined period of time.

CAP Premier enables graduate students to enhance their Career Accelerator Program (CAP) experience by taking additional CAP courses and applying for eight-week virtual internship opportunities starting in September. 

CAP Premier students benefit from: 

  • Industry-specific skills training and real-life work experiences at growing companies

  • Mentorship from industry experts 

  • Remote work skills training including skills in software/platforms

  • Cross-cultural competencies development and high-touch Career Accelerator curriculum 

  • Global networking opportunities, including access to exclusive employer events 

  • Certificates in design thinking and global citizenship

  • Hands-on trainings in computer software and academic research

Upon successful completion of the qualified CAP Premier program, graduate students will receive a recommendation letter and certificate of completion, signed by the employer.  

Plus, students are still eligible for the full duration of OPT and CPT once they arrive in the US!

I would recommend this [internship] to international students like me. I think this remote [internship] is very attractive in itself. I believe the flexible schedules and performance-based work provide great opportunities for students to test their own potential.”—Dami, University of Central Oklahoma, '20
