Spring 2021: Micro-Internship Program Just for AMA Members

Micro-internships provide a tremendous opportunity when you are launching your career. Not only can you explore marketing opportunities across companies, industries and functions, you can also demonstrate your abilities to potential employers while building your professional portfolio and network. Beyond that, your academic experience will improve as you apply classroom learning to the real world (and vice versa). Oh, did we forget to mention that you get paid for all of this? Featured opportunities include social media marketing, content creation, and email marketing. Micro-internships are facilitated via the Parker Dewey platform, which connects career launchers with companies in need of support.
