Micro-Internships - Employer

Charter Oak State College is excited to announce a new opportunity for our corporate and nonprofit partners to offer short-term, professional, paid work experiences to current students through Micro-Internships.

What Are Micro-Internships?

Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. Unlike a traditional internship which often lasts for a full 15 week semester, these paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and many can be completed remotely.

Not only does this help students, but it allows employers to get immediate support on tasks that may not be the best use of your team’s time. In addition, by engaging our students earlier, you can help enhance your company’s pipeline for future talent.

“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.”
