What is a Micro-Internship?

Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or traditional interns. These shorter assignments offer a new way to customize your professional growth through 2-4 week internships and short-term projects that help you explore industries and functions while building your network and gaining experience.

Micro-Internships are used by companies ranging from the Fortune 100 to emerging start-ups, and go across departments and functions, including sales, marketing, technology, HR, and finance.

The CDO recently launched a partnership with Parker Dewey, the organization that pioneered the concept of Micro-Internships. Through MIT Sloan’s Parker Dewey Portal students can connect with companies for their short-term professional projects.

To view and apply for micro-internship opportunities, complete your profile on MIT Sloan’s Parker Dewey Portal and apply for the opportunities that interest you. International students: please note, each Micro-Internship experience requires separate CPT authorization, so international students in their first year of a two-year program (MBA) or in their first year of a 18-month program (MFin) will only be eligible to do one Internship/Micro-Internship during the summer. Please visit the International Students Office Employment webpage for details and guidance on CPT and OPT.
