Thanks to Parker Dewey for sharing these tips for applying to Micro-Internships with us in a recent newsletter.
You’ve made an account on Parker Dewey and filled out your profile—now what? Let’s talk about how to complete and submit a Micro-Internship application.
- Start by viewing open opportunities. New projects are posted daily, and are typically filled within a few days. The platform deliberately uses very few filters so that you can explore and apply for all projects that interest you. As you scroll through the list of available projects, click on Favorite to mark ones that interest you. Select Hide to hide a project from your list. You can also filter projects by location, or view only remote Micro-Internships. (Most projects are completed virtually these days!)
- Once you find a project title that interests you, click DETAILS to see the full description. Be sure to note important dates, estimated hours, payment, and desired skills—listed to help you determine whether you’re a fit for a particular project.
- Finally, click “Apply to this project.” You’ll then be taken to a short-answer application, which typically includes 1-3 questions. For tips on how to respond to these prompts, scroll down to this week’s featured article on acing a short answer application!
Remember: A great application begins with a great profile. Before you apply, make sure yours is complete.
P.S. We are always happy to help do an application and profile review to help you stand out—don’t forget about this valuable resource!
