Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are completed virtually. The UNT Career Center has partnered with Parker Dewey to make micro internships available to UNT students and alumni. The service is free, and you can get started at http://info.parkerdewey.com/unt. These competitive work assignments allow students and recent graduates to demonstrate their skills, gain applied experience, and build their professional portfolios as they seek the right full-time role or more traditional internship opportunity.
