Parker Dewey Micro Internships

Micro-internships: short-term, paid, professional assignments. These projects enable students to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build their networks.

Unlike traditional internships, micro-internships can take place year-round, typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and are due between one week and one month after kick-off. Micro-internships are used by companies ranging from those in the fortune 100 to emerging start-ups, and go across departments including sales, marketing, technology, hr, and finance.
