Work from home internship are best for all kind of students, you can gain knowledge, experience and few bucks. I will share my experience that how I got internships and what to do after that.
So lets start talking about my prior experience and project work. As a Android Developer I had created and worked on many projects, few are live on play store with 50k+ total user base. So I had good knowledge about my field.
How And Where To Apply
There are good number of sites or job portals, but I used Internshala(Free Platform) to apply for internships. 80% of company on Internshala are startups, so it will have its own pros and cons. I Always applied for work from home internships on Internshala. You can work on your own time without any travel. You will get tons of position in your field to apply.

What After Getting Selected
I was hired by 5 Companies from Internshala as Android Developer Intern and every company had different work pattern. 3 Companies provided me task to test my skills and 2 just hired me on my past work. Currently I am working with 2 companies and its been more than 5–6 Months.

What If I Have Zero Past Experience
Its called internships but company still look for past work. If you have zero past experience or project work, Then before applying to any internship just build few projects with your skills, because if you apply with your empty resume then you are going to get rejected.

If you are UI/UX Designer then build few designs, If you are from marketing field than get your skills into work attract companies with your catchy lines. Its all about the Skills.You can do few free courses online and improve your skills, Build Projects and Then Start Applying.
Getting Rejected/Not Getting Response From Company
Well this is a normal thing. If you apply to 15 companies than you will get response from 4–5 companies. If you got response from any company and later they hired someone else than message them or mail them and ask what things you need to improve or where did I lag. Take that rejection positively and improve your skill and apply again :).There are tons of companies at Internshala and you will find good number of work from home internship.
