HOW MANY HOURS EACH WEEK SHOULD I EXPECT TO WORK IN THIS INTERNSHIP?
SINCE THIS IS A VIRTUAL POSITION, HOW OFTEN CAN I EXPECT TO SPEAK WITH you?
From week to week we'll communicate primarily by email. Once at the beginning of the week (Monday before noon) I'll lay out tasks and answer questions for the week, and then I'll expect to hear back from you with the finished tasks by the end of the week (Friday by 5 CST). However, we'll likely have video meetings to discuss and outline projects.
