In addition to providing on-demand support, Micro-Internships are great auditions, allowing you to test-drive entry-level talent. This lowers the risk of making a bad hire, while improving retention.
How to use Micro-Internships for on-demand project support
Micro-Internships allow you to get on-demand support from highly motivated college students and recent grads. While many short-term tasks may not be the best use of your time, Micro-Interns are excited to work on these 5-40 hours-in-total assignments as a way to demonstrate their skills and gain experience. As a complement or precursor or alternative to a traditional internship program, Micro-Interns are available year-round and on-demand to help on professional projects.
Project library and scoping
Whether you know exactly what needs to be done or are unsure what projects are the best fit for Micro-Interns, you can access more than 50 Micro-Internship project templates. For additional support scoping and budgeting your project, our Client Success Team is available to assist.
Micro-Internships are great auditions, allowing you and Career Launchers to mutually assess one another in a risk-free way. As a result, you'll enhance your pipeline of candidates who are familiar with your organization, improving your hiring outcomes and retention.

This is the 'anti-staffing firm.' I set the price for the assignment, picked who I wanted, and when I decided to hire her, there were no fees.
Talent Acquisition Manager,
I like that there's no commitment. I posted a project to see who would apply, and now I have some amazing college students and recent graduates helping me.
Head of Employee Success,
Using Parker Dewey was so easy! I didn't need to spend time onboarding because the Career Launcher understood my project from their coursework. Getting them started was effortless.
