There's a hunger with folks that are doing these Micro-Internships because they're eager to come in and show what they can do.

"The great thing about Micro-Internships is that even if you don't think you're qualified, or you don't have the skills, these are the very opportunities to learn skills."
"The world needs thinkers - people who know how to think and interpret all this. We could talk about ChatGPT all day, but if you don't have humans to power the creativity on it, there's a whole realm of creative knowledge that's left off the table."
“When it comes to exploring careers and building experiences, Parker Dewey is such an invaluable resource for first-generation students… It’s short-term and a unique opportunity to sample various career paths before committing to a full-time role.”

"The Micro-Interns that I selected… I trained them and they did a tremendous job. Very low lift on my side… They blew my expectations out of the water in terms of how fast they got the project done."
