What is a “Micro-Internship?”

Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, project-based assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Participating in micro-internships helps you explore different career paths while building your portfolio, expanding your network, and developing your skills as you seek the right full-time role.

How does a Micro-Internship work?

Participating in a micro-internship is easy: Create a Parker Dewey account (less than 5 minutes!), browse the paid projects posted by a variety of companies, select a project and apply.

Benefits of Micro-Internships:

There are many reasons to participate in a micro-internship:
  • Signing up is fast and free! Visit the Parker Dewey website to get started
