Micro-Internships (Students)

Marshall University is continuing to closely monitor the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships.  As such, we would like to remind students of the opportunity to pursue short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships which can be completed remotely.

Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and students can be selected for multiple Micro-Internships.

As the nation responds to the dynamic environment as a result of COVID-19, new Micro-Internship opportunities are being posted daily.

Interested students are encouraged to:

  • Create an account on Marshall University’s Micro-Internship platform
  • Fill out your profile as completely as possible
  • Have a resume ready! Need assistance? Contact the Office of Career Education to schedule a virtual resume appointment at career@marshall.edu
  • Review current Micro-Internship projects available and apply to projects of interest
  • You may be asked to fill out supplemental questions. If you need assistance, upload a document with the questions and your answers to Handshake to be reviewed by a Career Coach.
  • Companies will review applicants and choose their students. No interviews!
  • Continue to check the platform regularly for new opportunities

If you have any questions, please contact Erin LaFon at lafone@marshall.edu
