Skills-Based Hiring with Micro-Internships


The Gig Economy: Enabling Experiential Learning at Scale

While internships, co-ops, and other experiential learning opportunities are invaluable to student academic and career success, many students are unable to participate in these programs. In addition, the potential number of these experiential opportunities are limited by the high financial and other costs to employers.  As a result, employers often only make these available to students from specific backgrounds and post-secondary institutions.  


During this keynote we will highlight how the emergence of Micro-Internships is addressing these challenges, and doing so in a way that does not undermine academic freedom or require faculty behavior change.  Specifically, through the use of short-term, paid, professional assignments, companies can offer significantly more experiential opportunities that will be accessible to a greater number of learners.  As students participate in these assignments, not only are they developing relationships with professionals, but they are also engaging with faculty and alumni as in-class learning is reinforced.  We will also share strategies to introduce or amplify these programs, and metrics on the results.

Getting to Know Jeffrey



What was your first job? What did you learn from it?

Was the first summer intern
I had working with me.
While not a formal teaching experience, it highlighted the value of giving individuals the opportunity to learn through experience, and providing

the structure where they can make mistakes in a “risk free” way. I was fortunate as that was the environment my first boss provided to me, so I simply did my best to replicate it.


Where/who do you look to in order to stay updated on changes in your field?

The students on our platform. Not only is it why we do
what we do, but seeing the challenges so many of them are going through makes me want to push even harder.


What sparked your interest in work-based learning?

In most areas of education there is an inherent conflict of interest between the stakeholders – learners, teachers, funders, administrators, etc. However, in college-to- career the interest of all of stakeholders are aligned. Learners want to get great jobs, colleges want their students to get hired and keep employers happy, and employers want to make great hires. However when looking at the metrics around the space (eg 47% of recent grads under/ unemployed, 55% first year attrition, increasing cost / hire) something is clearly not working.
