For International Students

Our Micro-Internships are only available to US citizens or international students with approved Curricular Practical Training (CPT), Optional Practical Training (OPT) or a work visa. It is critical international students submit their requests for CPT at least a week before their micro-internship is set to begin. If you are an international student, you will need to confirm your eligibility before your account can be activated. If you are unsure about your eligibility, contact The International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) .

What are Micro-Internships?

Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. These projects enable Career Launchers to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build their networks as they seek the right full-time role. 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. 

Micro-Internships are facilitated via the Parker Dewey platform, which connects Career Launchers with Companies in need of support.
