Alumni Micro-Internships

Small Experience, Big Impact.

We are happy to announce the UNLV Micro-Internship (UMI) Program. UNLV has partnered with Parker Dewey to provide additional experiential opportunities to explore different roles and company cultures.

About Micro-Internships

Short term, paid, professional assignments that can be completed by a current student or recent grad with minimal guidance or on-boarding. Similar to a traditional internship, UNLV Micro-Internships will provide you access to a larger talent pool, assist in attracting top talent, improve new hire retention, and complement existing programs such as an internship programs or campus recruiting programs. However, unlike a traditional internship, these assignments typically range from 5-40 hours total of work, can be completed totally remotely, and can be done in any department in your organization providing your busy hiring managers with some just-in-time support.
