Parker Dewey

College of Charleston is continuing to closely monitor the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. As such, we would like to remind students of the opportunity to pursue short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships 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.

As the nation responds to the dynamic environment as a result of COVID-19, new Micro-Internship opportunities are being posted daily. Interested students are encouraged to:

  • Create an account on Parker Dewey
  • Fill out your profile as completely as possible
  • Review current Micro-Internship projects available
  • Apply to projects of interest
  • Continue to check the platform regularly for new opportunities
