What is a Micro-Internship?
Micro-Internships are short-term, professional projects that typically require between 10-40 hours of work by the college student or recent grad and are due within a few days to a few weeks. While the projects may not be the best use of time for you or your team (e.g., content creation, data cleansing, lead generation, etc.), college students and recent grads are excited to gain professional experience. As a result, not only do you get on-demand support, but this also allows you to see if someone is a good fit for a permanent role in your bank.
How Micro-Internships Help Solve Business Challenges
Micro-Internships focus on solving the challenges many banks are experiencing including:
● missed opportunities as existing employees have too many tasks and not enough time
● access to high caliber college students and recent grads who are excited about opportunities in the banking industry
● ability to drive diversity, assess fit, and ensure successful hires
As part of BankTalentHQ’s commitment to helping companies hire and retain early career professionals from great colleges and universities nationwide, Parker Dewey‘s CEO and Founder, Jeffrey Moss, joined BankTalentHQ recently to explain:
● an overview on how Micro-Internships work,
● use cases for supporting diversity hiring initiatives, and
● how these short-term projects create equitable access to professional careers in our community.
