Remote Work Resources

Parker DeweyMicro-Internships

CMC is continuing to monitor the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. We have partnered with Parker Dewey to make Micro-Internships more accessible to students and recent graduates. As such, we would like to remind students of the opportunity to pursue these short-term, professional, paid work experiences which can be completed remotely.

Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. These paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work, and students can be selected for multiple Micro-Internships.
