The AMA Micro-Internship Program provides opportunities for professional members to engage student members on short-term assignments. Beyond the immediate benefits, micro-internships help build relationships between all AMA members.
As a busy marketing professional, you and your colleagues likely have a backlog of projects waiting to get done or are working on tasks that are not the most strategic use of your time. Through AMA Micro-Internships, you can get immediate support from highly motivated college students who are excited to do the hard work to launch their careers. Plus, you might even find your next great hire.
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?
