FIND A Micro-INTERNSHIP: 

WHAT IS A MICRO-INTERNSHIP?

Micro-internships are short-term, project-based assignments offered by organizations virtually. Projects can take anywhere from one week to a few months to complete and usually range from 5 to 40 hours of work.

 

Projects are designed to be completed year-round and students are usually paid a fixed fee. Micro-internships complement existing experiential learning and may appeal to those who do not have the financial or academic flexibility to re-locate for a full-time internship. Additionally, micro-internships provide a scalable way for employers to engage with talent and for you to get hands-on experience.

A micro-internship connects students and alumni by engaging in meaningful work. Micro-internships allow you to complete projects while simultaneously evaluating companies for future, full-time opportunities. You can showcase your skills and work ethic to begin, or continue, building your professional network. 

BENEFITS OF MICRO-INTERNSHIPS
  • Expand your resume by completing projects for a diverse array of companies

  • Develop skills and competencies in different disciplines to attract potential employers

  • Evaluate companies for future opportunities

  • Build professional network

  • Improve academic outcomes and career readiness
