Micro-Internships help you leverage the power of the gig economy year-round to:

  • Access a larger talent pool

    I need to reach more high potential candidates without additional travel costs.
  • Attract top talent

    I need to appeal to students even though we're not a top brand.
  • Improve new hire retention

    I need to lower our reneges and improve retention for entry-level roles.
  • Complement existing programs

    I want to innovate our campus recruiting strategy.

Leverage our network of more than 200 partner schools and a total network reach of more than 11 million degree earners nationwide to audition candidates via Micro-Internships. You’ll see candidates in action and get feedback directly from hiring managers to collaboratively decide on next steps.

Access students beyond your target schools

Let’s face it: most companies just can’t compete with Google for attracting talent. But that doesn’t mean you can’t generate awareness, build interest, and offer a low-risk way for students and recent grads to “try before they buy” and see what it’s like to work for your organization. Micro-Internships offer mutual auditions so candidates and hiring teams can feel confident in their decision.

Attract high potential candidates that aren't familiar with your brand.

55.3% of college graduates will leave their first job within a year after spending time in a company that doesn’t feel like the right fit. Micro-Internships offer mutual auditions so candidates and hiring teams can feel confident in their decision, and a way for students to explore careers before making a long-term commitment.

Improve entry-level retention

Build a better pathway from college to career using Micro-Internships as a feeder into existing internship and management training programs. You’ll connect with a wider, more diverse network of candidates, attract students who may not have previously considered your industry, and identify candidates that have the skills to succeed at your organization.

A Better Way to Hire

"While we were focused on just getting some help on a project, we quickly realized that the student was incredible, and ultimately hired her as a summer intern. We saw her work ethic and skills, and got an inside track on hiring her."
