    Hello Darshan, how are you? I hope you and your family are well and safe during the pandemic.

    As far as I'm concerned, there are no virtual internships to the chemical engineering related area, only technology area. Although I did see one place that connects students with virtual internships, called "CareerUp, Inc.". You can easily find them on LinkedIn, as an example.

    As I'm not sure if that would interest you, maybe you could develop new skills - whether hard or soft skills - so you can be even more prepared to apply for an internship when the right time comes There are a bunch of free and paid resources online and I'll list some of them:

    I hope these informations can help you somehow on your journey for an internship somehow. Any doubts you have feel free to msg me through here or my e-mail. Wish you the best of luck!

    Best regards,

    Hello Christian! I hope you and your family are doing fine during the pandemic.

    As I wrote to Darshan, I extremely recommend taking a look at the LinkedIn. You can find a lot of companies through there and make valuables connections that could last forever with people that, otherwise, you probably wouldn't meet.

    If you can't find anything that interests you, you can always search for online courser where you enhance your skills in different areas.

    Best Regards,
