MICRO-INTERNSHIPS & PRACTICUM
Businesses are “unbundling” their work and making them more time-sensitive and project-based. In the world of communication, there is a demand for projects focused on content creation and social media management.
Micro-internships are generally short-term opportunities that range from 10 to 40 hours each. Like regular internships, micro-internships can be paid or unpaid, depending upon the project.
