NEW FOR STUDENTS & RECENT ALUMNI! Micro-internship Opportunities through Parker Dewey

These are short-term, professional assignments similar to those tasks a new hire or intern might do. Like traditional internships, micro-internships can take place any semester. Micro-internships are mostly remote although can be on-site. Typically, they range from 5-40 hours of work and occur within a week or a month time period. Parker Dewey connects students to diverse companies and organizations across the US and applying is a time sensitive, competitive process. Students can gain experience for their resume, explore career paths, build their networks, and be paid. Micro-internships are offered by Fortune 100 companies to emerging start-ups in departments including sales, marketing, technology, HR, and finance. These micro-internships are for current students and recent graduates although some workplaces may have specific requirements like being at a certain level in your education.
