(Project Based Opportunities)

Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Often, these projects require 20-40 hours of total work across 2-4 weeks and can be completed remotely. They are posted on a rolling basis and can be applied to year-round. Learn more about Mav Micros and how they can benefit your students.
