Lead Generation

Identify 25 companies/contacts in a defined market that fall under our ideal customer profile. Once identified, provide the company name and contact information (name, position, phone, and verified email) for key decision makers.

Prospect Research

Research and segment lead generation lists (approximately 100 individuals) based upon past interaction on our website and email engagement. Deliverables include name, company, role, and contact information.

Market Research

Create a market analysis for a specific industry. As part of this, determine and provide details on existing companies in the space. In addition, determine trends associated with the growth of the space and key drivers of success or failure.

Data Cleansing

Provide a student with a dataset and have them remove duplicates, update outdated records, and ensure there is consistent formatting. Students can work to ensure data quality by verifying its integrity and making sure it is complete.

Social Media Content Calendar

Create a social media content calendar with 2 posts per day for the next month. The posts should have a good mix of thought leadership, informational, and promotional content (which we will provide). In addition, we would also like you to curate and interact with social media content as well.

Sourcing Candidates

Provide a student with a job description and have them identify 25 candidates they think would be good for the position. The student provides a brief justification as to why they selected these specific candidates, as well as potential questions for each to use in an interview.

Diversity Best Practices

Assist in the development of a diversity best practices manual. Identify between 10 and 20 thoughtful articles that highlight the importance of diversity in organizations, best practices, and potential challenges. Summarize key points in a single document.

Content Creation

Research and draft a 1,200-1,600 word article/blog on a specific topic we will provide. The article should be consistent with existing articles posted on our website and other marketing channels. Reference at least two outside sources in the article, and carefully edit the final product.

Email Marketing Campaign

Develop a series of 3-5 emails to help promote an upcoming initiative. The emails will be sent out sequentially and should play off each other to drive engagement.

Extracting Insights from Data

Review and manipulate a data set that will be provided. After reviewing the data, provide a summary of actionable insights they have extracted.

What are Micro-Internships?

Micro-Internships are short-term, professional assignments that are similar to those given to recent college grads or interns. Not only is this a great way to support our students, it also provides you with immediate support and complements your campus recruiting efforts.

  • Typically require 10-40 hours, and can be bundled to create a longer-term experience

  • Each project has a discrete deliverable, making it easier for companies and Career Launchers to evaluate outcomes

  • Available year-round as needed

  • Provides an easy way for companies and Career Launchers to build authentic relationships

While we were focused on just getting some help on a project, we quickly realized that the student was incredible, and ultimately hired her as a summer intern. We saw her work ethic and skills, and got an inside track on hiring her.

This is the 'anti-staffing firm.' I set the price for the assignment, picked who I wanted, and when I decided to hire her, there were no fees.

Not only did the Career Launcher shine, he excelled. He took the brand to a new level and challenged our group to think outside the box. Could not have been more pleased or grateful for the opportunity to work with this motivated individual. It's all about opportunity and Parker Dewey gives students exactly that. I look forward to our next project!
