Do a Micro-Internship Program 

The OSU Career Development Center is excited to announce a new opportunity for our students to take part in short-term, professional, paid work experiences through micro-internships (hosted on the Parker Dewey platform). Through micro-internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. Unlike a traditional internship, these paid opportunities typically range from five to 40 hours of work, and many can be completed remotely. Not only does this help the companies, but it allows our students to get immediate support and enhance their professional experience. Get Experience. Get Paid. Get Hired.
