Micro-internships, gain skills and test drive the market

The new world of work is upon us and finding ways to add value and be a part of it will require some creativity and innovative thinking on both your part and the part of employers. 

Micro-internships have been on the rise for the last few years, and in this environment are expected to continue.  These are short-term professional projects that allow students an opportunity to develop their skill sets and test the market while adding solid experience to their resume. These opportunities can be easily balanced with work and school without the longer-term commitment of a full internship. 

For employers, they get to see how students work, approach professionalism and apply their skills and experiences in the workplace.
