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, Micro-Internships will provide you access to a larger talent pool, assist in attracting top talent, improve new hire retention. 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.

How it works:

1. Create an Account – There are no fees to sign up and it takes less than five minutes to do

2. Post Your Project – Describe what you want and set the price without any commitment

3. Review Applicants – Select who you want without any HR or legal burdens
