Micro-Internships (Employers)

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 encourage our employer partners to consider posting short-term, professional, paid work experiences (i.e. Micro-Internships) which can be completed remotely.

Beyond providing you or your colleagues with immediate support on tasks, they also support your university recruiting efforts during this challenging time. Specifically, Micro-Internships help you identify, assess, and nurture students who may be prospective job candidates.

For students, Micro-Internships allow them to demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and build relationships with prospective employers. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work and are projects that are similar to those completed during a typical internship.

Micro-Internships can be completed across all departments including:

  • Sales/Marketing
  • Human Resources
  • Strategy
  • Research
  • Operations and Support
  • Finance and Accounting
  • IT
