Ep 84: Revolutionizing Career Preparation: How Micro-Internships Are Shaping the Future of Work


Companies' strict adherence to degree requirements for internships and entry-level jobs can hinder job seekers, especially those with degrees outside the specified fields. This filtering mechanism limits career options and complicates career transitions. However, the rise of the gig economy has inspired our podcast guest today to develop a platform that connects undergraduates and companies, regardless of academic background.

In this episode, I am joined by Jeffrey Moss, the Founder and CEO of Parker Dewey, a company that bridges companies and students and makes the transition from college to career, as smooth as possible. We discuss the rise of micro-internships and how they are changing the way students and companies connect. Jeffrey shares his belief that micro internships should be a core part of both the university experience for learners and the recruiting process for employers.
