Parker Dewey

Parker Dewey is a platform for students to take part in short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships. Through these experiences you can demonstrate your skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. Unlike traditional internships, these paid opportunities typically range from only 5 to 40 work hours, and many can be completed remotely.
