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 you to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build you networks as you seek the right full-time role. Unlike traditional internships, Micro-Internships can take place year-round, typically range from five to 40 hours of work, and are due between one week and one month after kick-off.
