Demonstrate your skills, develop relationships and explore career paths, while providing real value to a business.

As a student, you can pursue both paid and unpaid micro-internships:

Paid Micro-Internships will be offered via our collaboration with Parker Dewey, a leader in the field of micro-internships. You will also be able to find paid micro-internship opportunities posted there by Adelphi alumni.

Unpaid Micro-Internships can also be seen on Adelphi’s own Handshake platform, offering further opportunities for Micro-Internships with Adelphi alumni and existing nonprofit employer partners.

How to Get a Paid Micro-Internship with Parker Dewey

  1. Access the Parker Dewey Adelphi site
  2. Click Create A Free Account and then at the bottom of the next page click If You Are a Student, Sign Up as a Career Launcher.
  3. After you’ve created an account, you will be asked to fill out a series of questions. You have the option to connect your LinkedIn account (we recommend doing so). Fill out as much information as you can. Employers will be vetting your application in part by reviewing your history, education, skills, and qualifications as they are listed here.

    • Mark the ones you are interested in as Favorites for easier filtering later on, or hide an opportunity you don’t have interest in (you can undo this).
  5. In the Details expansion, you can choose to apply for an opportunity. When you apply, you will be taken to a page that will ask you a series of questions:
    • Why do you think you would be a good fit for this position?
    • Other questions may be asked, and will vary based on the nature of the project.
    • When you are answering the questions, submit your application.
  6. You will be able to see your listings of project applications under the Applied tab at the top, and a listing of projects for which you have been Hired and those that you have Completed.

How to Get an Unpaid Micro-Internship with Handshake

Most unpaid Micro-Internships postings are put up directly by employers, but students with qualifying Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid package may also be able to get paid for specific Micro-Internship programs offered through Panthers with a Purpose.

  1. Log in to Handshake. This can also be done via eCampus.
  2. Select Jobs
  3. On the job page, you can click internship to filter by all internships.
  4. Here you can browse all internships for anything that includes “Micro-Internship” in the title.
  5. Alternatively, you’re able to search for “Micro-Internship” in the search bar.

Students will apply for Micro-Internships via Handshake by selecting Internships and looking for those postings with the words Micro-Internship in the title. The rest of the application process is done in the same way as with regular, longer internships (those that typically last a semester or more).
