Although Toolwire's virtual internships might sound strange at first, when you consider that thousands of people log dozens of hours a week tending digital farms on Facebook, then suddenly they don't seem so crazy.

Using a product known as 'Immersive Learning Environments', Toolwire's virtual internships are essentially the culmination of gaming, education, and professional training in order to provide students and those training to enter the workforce the opportunity to brush up on their skills and knowledge in a simulated work environment. So far, the product has been surprisingly succesful, with Toolwire reporting that their virtual internships have been used by over 100,000 students to date.
