What is Micro-Internship?
Micro-internships are short-term, remote experiences in which students connect with professionals in the field to develop new knowledge and skills on a certain topic and career field of interest.
For students, this is a chance to explore a particular industry or career while gaining practical skills and developing their network. These are short-term, remote, and more flexible opportunities to gain experience than a traditional internship.

John Carroll University is closely monitoring the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. As such, the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion and Student Accessibility Services would like to encourage our employer partners to consider posting short-term, professional, paid work experiences (i.e., Micro-Internships), which can be completed remotely.
Beyond providing you or your colleagues with immediate support on tasks, the short-term projects also support your talent recruiting and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts during this challenging time. Micro-Internships help you identify, assess, and nurture students who may be prospective job candidates upon completion.
For students, Micro-Internships allow them to demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and build relationships with prospective employers. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work.
Micro-Internships can be completed across all departments, including:
- Sales/Marketing (social media contents)
- Human Resources
- Operations and Support (administrative roles)
- Finance and Accounting
