FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are some of the questions that are commonly asked about the different programmes within Pearl Lemon

We require interns to guarantee at least 20 hours of work per week. It does not matter when you work during the day and how many days per week you work. The only thing that is fundamental is being able to reply to messages within one hour between 9 am and 6 pm in the timezone where you are currently based.

Being with a start-up long term is an intense, fun, and unique experience. There is a dynamic and level of learning hard to meet in any other environment. Being fully remote and watching a buisness change, grow, and evolve rather quickly is something hard to observe in most other places.

It very well can. We like to be sure that you can support yourself as an intern, but renewing an internship allows for additional experience to be gained, bump up to leadership roles, and have the potential to come on board as a core team member. It all depends how much you want to continue to learn.

Definitely! You can manage 100% of your time and have the possibility to attend school, courses, have other jobs, and so on as long as you can guarantee at least 20 hours of work per week.

Written tutorials and manuals also exist that you will be redirected to both during the initial trial process and when you start as part of the team. If unsure about how to proceed with new software or tools just ask- someone will be able to redirect you to the information you need.
