Micro-Internships by Parker Dewey provides Indiana Tech students with unique opportunities to gain valuable professional experience outside the traditional internship cycle. Through micro-internships, students can learn and hone the skills that employers look for, build meaningful connections with organizations across the country, and get paid—all in your spare time.
What is a Micro-Internship?
Micro-internships are paid short-term projects posted by employers across a wide range of industries. Often, these projects require 20-40 hours of total work across 2-4 weeks and can be completed remotely. They are posted on a rolling basis and can be applied to year-round.
What are the Benefits of a Micro-Internship?
Micro-internships are a great way to take advantage of spare time to set yourself up for success.
By participating in a micro-internship, you can:
- Learn and hone the skills employers look for when recruiting for internships and full-time positions
- Explore new industries and potential career paths
- Build tangible relationships with employers by demonstrating your skills and abilities in substantive projects—many employers use micro-internships to connect with potential interns and full-time hires.
