Parker Dewey Micro-Internships
Our Micro-Internships program connects students to our diverse network
of companies and organizations to take on professional, paid, short-term
assignments year-round. As a complement to existing campus recruiting efforts
and semester-long internships, Micro-Internships provide opportunities for
Career Launchers to demonstrate their skills, develop relationships, and explore
career paths, while providing real value to businesses.
Get Professional Experience Now
Micro-Internships allow students to apply to short-term, professional assignments,
while also allowing companies to identify and assess highly motivated college
students and recent graduate for fit should there be full-time opportunities. Unlike
traditional internships, these paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of
work, can be completed year-round, and help students develop career skills while
Companies have recognized that major and GPA alone do not predict career
success or fit. Unlike assessments, video interviews, algorithms, and other
applicant screening technology, Micro-Internships improve hiring effectiveness by
allowing companies to authentically evaluate a Career Launcher’s skills and work
ethic upfront. Both employers and candidates win by having an opportunity to do
actual work with one another before committing to an internship or full-time role.
You gain professional experience. Companies get immediate support.
Enhance your resume and find the right full-time role.

Most college majors don’t sound like job titles. But you come
from a competitive, open-minded environment and have
powerful motivation to exceed expectations as you look to

and campus support to complete professional assignments
while gaining experience and demonstrating research,
problem solving, and communication skills.
Micro-Internships enable businesses to audition talent to see
how the fit into the company. This innovative way to evaluate
candidates alleviates temporary resource constraints while
