Foolish Thoughts #23: Is Micro-Internship an Old Wine in a New Skin?

Updated: Nov 14, 2019

Recently, T&D Magazine, published by the Association for Talent Development (ATD), posted a short article on a "new trend" called: Micro-Internship.


I was intrigued and after conducting some additional research, it:

- employs college students

- is project based

- consists of five to forty hours of work

- takes place over a one to twelve week period

- work is located on-site or remote

- pays between $15 to $25 an hour

- all of the logistics are handled online

After thinking about this a bit, this seems simply to be a new take on an old method of calling a Temp(orary) Agency. Am I wrong? Am I missing something here? Do you have any thoughts?
