Micro-Internships and Project-based Experiences

Short-term, professional, paid experiences are key to moving forward during these uncertain times. Parker Dewey provides a way for you to immediately connect with a diverse network of companies and organizations year-round. Micro-Internships will allow you to apply to short-term, professional assignments, while also allowing companies to identify and assess highly motivated college students and recent graduate for fit should there be full-time opportunities.
