About Micro-Internships

Similar to an internship, you can gain valuable experience honing your career skills, exploring your potential career industry, and networking. However, that is where the similarities end. One of the big differences is length. A project typically can range from 5-40 hours of work – easier to weave into your life than a semester-long internship. All micro-internships are professional paid projects and nearly all internship projects are conducted remotely.


  • Have the opportunity to apply for professional opportunities that can help you develop career skills outside of the traditional internship cycle.
  • Work with diverse companies and people.
  • Build tangible relationships with employers by demonstrating your skills and abilities in substantive projects.
  • Resume-worthy experiences that may lead into a longer-term opportunity.
