Last year, Matthew Hanzelka did an internship with a financial planner while finishing
coursework at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.
But his wasn't a traditional type of internship, complete with a workstation in an
otherwise unused corner of an office. All the work -- including helping to develop
a monthly email newsletter -- was done from home. And Mr. Hanzelka mainly communicated
with his boss through email and telephone.
