A micro-internship is a short-term project that is easy to explain and requires no on-boarding, and can be executed by college students or recent graduates. These projects are typically low risk, but important tasks that are due within a week to a month with fixed prices set by you.

How does a Micro-Internship work?

Micro-internships follow a simple process: Post your project to the UTRGV Parker Dewey website, select the applicants you want, and Parker Dewey will handle the rest.

UTRGV has partnered with Parker Dewey to connect employers with students for short-term, professional, paid work experiences. Regardless of your role, industry, or organization size, students and alumni from University of Texas Rio Grande Valley can help. Get started in posting your first micro-internship.
