Explore Micro-Internships

  • Micro-internships are paid short-term projects posted by employers across a wide range of industries. Often, these projects require 5-40 hours of work across one to four weeks, pay $12-$25 per estimated hour and can be completed remotely or on site.
  • Micro-internships are posted on a rolling basis, and can be applied to year-round.
  • Students bid for the jobs by writing a short application, receive valuable feedback via employer evaluations and then are paid a lump sum upon satisfactory completion of the project.
  • Students can learn and hone transferable career skills, explore potential career paths, build meaningful networks with organizations across the country, and get paid. Additionally, employers gain immediate access to a competitive source of talent for short-term projects which can later lead to summer internships and full-time hires.
  • Alumni employers can take this one step further by filtering bidding students by alma mater in order to strengthen mentoring connections.
  • To get started, simply explore opportunities or post a project!
