Parker Dewey offers students and recent alumni to take part on short-term, professional, paid micro-internship experiences. These experiences can provide a great way to get paid while acquiring skills and building your resume.
Here is a 7-minute video overview for students about how the Parker Dewey Micro-Internship platform works. The video also highlights tips for student success.
- Create your personal profile as completely and accurately as possible, especially your education and experience. Students with complete profiles are more likely to be selected. Please note: to see exclusive projects for University students only, you need add the University of Nevada, Reno to your Education section of the profile.
- Upload a resume and a link to your LinkedIn profile. Samples of your work from classes, internships, part-time jobs, etc. can be helpful.
- The application process involves completing one or more short-answer questions. These questions typically also serve as the interview (companies may reach out to applicants to request an interview, but this is pretty rare).
- New opportunities are posted regularly and projects come and go very quickly.
It may take multiple attempts to land a project, please do not get discouraged. Stop by or schedule a virtual appointment with one of our Career Mentors to increase your chances on submitting a high quality application. Micro-Internships can lead to internship and full-time job offers, and is a great way to showcase your professional skills and gain experience to add to your resume. Lastly, please note that micro-internships through Parker Dewey require you to become independent contractors for the company, which may have tax implications. Please see their FAQs for more info.
