Fairfield University offers a platform for students to take part in short-term, professional, paid work experiences through Micro-Internships. Unlike a traditional internship, these paid opportunities typically range from 5 to 40 hours of work and can be completed remotely.

Micro-Internships provide a chance for students to demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop professional networks. Students provide immediate support to the employer and gain work experience for future internships and career options. Micro-Internships can include projects across all departments, including sales, HR, marketing, research, operations, and finance.
