Cougar Career Academy: Experiential recruiting through micro-internships

Register to Attend

About the event

Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. These projects enable students to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build their networks as they seek the right full-time role. Join us to learn how companies have been harnessing the benefits of Experiential Recruitment through Micro-Internships during the past five years and how you can connect with WSU students remotely this fall and beyond.
