Why Micro-Internships Will Be the Next Big Thing

What Are Micro-Internships?

While internships have existed for decades, innovative program types have begun to emerge. Virtual internships are increasingly popular: The University of Michigan’s College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, for example, connects students with global virtual internships in companies around the world, and even the federal government hires virtual interns in many bureaus.

Where micro-internships differ is in their execution, according to Parker Dewey, the organization that pioneered the concept. “Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns,” it explains. They usually consist of 5 to 40 hours of work, and can occur any time of year. They are highly-specific, project-based positions, often in arenas like lead generation, content creation, or data entry. Students receive a fixed fee, typically equating to $15 to $25 per hour, and are given between one week and one month to complete their project.

In its first few years, Parker Dewey claims it has helped more than 1,000 students complete micro-internships at companies such as Microsoft, CBRE, Dell, Leo Burnett, and Barilla. Perhaps inspired by the organization, Northeastern University has recently introduced a similar program called the Experiential Network, which arranges virtual six-week projects for its students.
