Micro-Internships (paid) from Parker Dewey
Micro-Internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. These projects allow you to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build your networks as you seek the right full-time role. Unlike traditional internships, Micro-Internships:

  • Can take place year-round.
  • Typically range from 10 to 40 hours of work.
  • Are typically due between one week and one month after kick-off.

On-Campus Recruiting (OCR)
Each year employers come to the Western campus to interview students for permanent career positions, as well as internships, in business, industry, government, and education.

Career Fairs and Events
Hundreds of local, regional and national employers/organizations attend WWU Career Fairs and events looking to connect with WWU Vikings! Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming events.
