The current economic and job landscape can be difficult to navigate. With some internships rescinded and industries on a hiring freeze, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. And even worse, your bank account may be taking a hit because of it. But fear not – Merrimack College’s O’Brien Center for Career Development has paired up with Parker Dewey to provide paid micro-internship opportunities to you! Micro-Internships are short-term, professional assignments that provide you with opportunities to gain experience, while helping companies get more done. Through these assignments, you will learn what it takes to succeed in an industry, while demonstrating your grit and determination as prospective employees.
Not only will a micro-internship help to enhance your career, give you more experience on your resume and build your skill set, you also can earn some extra cash from the comfort of your home. Whether you need some of the green stuff to pay down some bills, buy the newest exercise equipment for your at-home gym or splurge in some makeup for that TikTok tutorial, signing up for Parker Dewey is a win-win for your resume and your wallet.
Through your micro-internship assignments, you will get a firsthand look at how experienced professionals operate in the workplace and contribute on real projects. You’ll learn how a seemingly small or rote task adds value, and how the work connects to larger business goals.
