What is a micro-internship? A micro-internship is a short-term, paid project offered by you or your company, typically ranging from 5-40 hours of work on projects within departments such as sales, marketing, technology, HR, and finance.

How does it all work? Micro-internships are facilitated via a platform called Parker Dewey, accessed through UVM’s Career Center. Here is what the timeline will look like:



Pretty cool, right? Well here are four more reasons that micro-internships rock:

  • No Fuss. Parker Dewey, the micro-internship posting platform, handles the paperwork so you don’t have to onboard.
  • Stay Local. Support the VT economy by tapping into local talent.
  • Low Risk. Opportunity to try out local talent with little commitment.
  • Flexible. All micro-internships are remote and short-term.
