Northern Essex Community College’s Career Services is now offering a service for micro-internships, short term, paid professional assignments that are carried out remotely over 15 to 40-hours.

“These micro-internships will give students supplemental income and valuable skills quickly, while providing local and national employers with help on special projects,” said Ashley Moore, director of career services.

The college is partnering with three local chambers—Merrimack Valley, Greater Haverhill, and Greater Newburyport—to expand opportunities for students, and with Parker Dewey, a micro-internship consulting company to offer this service.

Companies who are interested in learning more about micro-internships and how to post assignments can attend a virtual information session hosted by Parker Dewey founder Jeffrey Moss and Moore on June 2 at 12:30 pm. Employers can register here or by contacting Moore at or 978 556-3946.

Moore said this new opportunity will add to the more traditional semester-long internships which the college currently offers, and also provide a safe alternative during the pandemic since all micro-internships are offered remotely.

All Northern Essex students and alumni will have access to the website and be eligible to apply for micro-internships.   When posted, the micro-internships will include details as well as the pay for the project. Students and alumni can open an account now.

Ten colleges and universities in Massachusetts are currently partnering with Parker Dewey, including Merrimack College.
