Micro Internships Opportunities on Parker Dewey

Micro-Internships opportunities are a great way to gain experience if a 12-week internship just doesn’t fit your busy schedule. Micro-Internships involve five to 40 hours of work, and many can be completed remotely, with you in one location and the employer-based in another. They are offered by companies of all shapes and sizes – from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. Assignments go across all departments, including sales, marketing, technology, human resources, and finance.
