Micro-internships

Looking to launch your career? Parker Dewey connects VCU students and alumni to micro-internships that can help you build and demonstrate skills.

What are micro-internships?

Parker Dewey's website explains micro-internships as 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 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 kickoff.

Micro-internships are used by companies ranging from the Fortune 100 list to emerging startups, and go across departments such as sales, marketing, technology, human resources and finance. 

Who is eligible to apply for micro-internships?

VCU students and alumni and encouraged to join Parker Dewey and apply for opportunities.
