Ep #95: The Remote Intern Experience with Helena Merron
/

How do you find a good remote work-life balance as an intern while you’re a full-time student? How do you work, study and still find the time for a social life?

Today on the show we chat to Helena, a Media Engagement Intern at Wurkr, about work/life/study balance.

(N.B. It’s the third conversation we’re having with the Wurkr team. Two weeks ago we spoke to co-founder Tim about his vision for a more sensible, flexible working world. Last week we spoke to Matthew the CXO about how they maintain the human connection within their distributed team.)

Helena started working full-time at Wurkr during the summer months, then went part time because she’s completing the last year of her undergrad at Edinburgh; also mostly online! So she’s not only a remote employee, but a remote student, too.

We talk about:
// What’s it like working for a company that’s always been remote
// The ease of working in Wurkr’s virtual office culture where everything is in one place
// How she plans her work/ life/ study balance & organises her day to fit everything in
// Why doodling creative themes in her monthly planner keeps her on track
// The surprise of being able to maintain personal working relationships as their remote team grows

And of course more.

I hope you enjoy it.
