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!
