Micro-internships are paid short-term projects posted by employers across a wide range of industries. Often, these projects require 20-40 hours of total work across 2-4 weeks and can be completed remotely. They are posted on a rolling basis, and can be applied to year-round. *Please note that internships below a total of 100 hours will not qualify for the internship requirement.”
