Internships are an essential part of the college experience. They provide students with valuable real-world experience, help them build a network of contacts, and give them a competitive edge when it comes to finding a job after graduation. But with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many traditional internships have been canceled or moved online. That’s where micro-internships come in.
Micro-internships are short-term, project-based internships that can be completed remotely. They offer many of the same benefits as traditional internships, but with more flexibility and a lower time commitment. This makes them an ideal option for college students who want to gain experience and build their resumes, but who may not have the time or ability to commit to a full-time internship.
Here are a few examples of micro-internship opportunities that are currently available to college students:
1. GameTech is looking for a student to help design a business-focused cyber wargame to prepare clients for responding to evolving cyber-attacks. The final deliverable will be a comprehensive cyber wargame plan, tailored to the client’s specific needs and goals.
2. Limon is a social app for day trips and they are looking for a marketing micro-intern to research, write and create day trips to post into the Limon app. The intern should be passionate about travel and creating high-quality content.
3. Space Adventures is searching for an intern to create a security vulnerability report that consolidates information on new security vulnerabilities and highlights trends and actionable insights. The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of security vulnerabilities and help the client understand the risks and potential impacts to their business.
4. The UCI ANTrepreneur Center is looking for an outgoing person to spread awareness around entrepreneurial resources at UCI. The intern will have an in-person presence around Ring Road, talking with students who come up to the booth, recruiting people who are walking by, handing out swag, gathering contact information, and learning more about the people who visit the booth to find out if they would be interested in the services we offer.
5. Para Todos, a leading Spanish-language magazine in CA & longest-running-self-published-woman-run-magazine in the US is searching for somebody with experience in marketing to review their marketing strategy and make recommendations on where they can improve.
