Micro-Internships via Parker Dewey
The Gateway Career Center is excited to announce a new opportunity for our students to take part in short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships. Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. Unlike a traditional internship, these paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and most can be completed remotely. Not only do micro-internships help companies, but they also allow you to demonstrate your skills, explore career paths, and develop your professional network.
IMPORTANT: Students may be required to sign legal documents, such as a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for micro-internships for which they are selected. While requirements such as these are common business practice, it is important that you carefully review all details included in the documentation prior to signing. Should you have questions regarding NDA or other documentation language, please feel free to reach out to your Gateway Counselor. Legal documentation, pay, and other logistics are coordinated by Parker Dewey, the Micro-Internships organization. Click here for additional information regarding Form 1099
Note for International Students: Micro-internships do not qualify for CPT, and the process for OPT is likely too time intensive and costly to make this short-term experience a viable option. Please consult Janine Block (firstname.lastname@example.org), International Student Advisor, if you have additional questions.
