Internships: What are micro-internships?

Let’s be honest – the COVID-19 has made the internship search more challenging. Some internships are on hold, some are going virtual, and some companies are optimistic and still hiring. The good news is H-SC has partnered with Parker Dewey to provide micro-internships to our students. They are competitive, but they can be a great way to fill your resume with short-term quality projects and experience.

What is a Micro-Internship?
Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional projects posted by employers across a wide range of industries. Projects require 5 to 40 hours of total work and can be completed remotely. New opportunities are posted on a rolling basis.

What are the benefits of a Micro-Internship?

  • Learn and hone the skills employers look for when recruiting for traditional internships and full-time positions
  • Explore new industries and potential career paths without a major commitment
  • Build relationships with employers by demonstrating your skills and abilities in substantive projects
  • Quickly add great experiences to your resume while getting paid!

Tiger Tip: When you apply for a micro-internship, the application asks why the company should hire you. They are asking for a short paragraph – 3-4 sentences. “I completed the Training the Street program and have an excellent background in financial modeling. I also have familiarity with R-Studio and have created data visualizations based on my results.”
