Hire KC connects college students to work-based learning opportunities that expose them to new potential career pathways and better prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow. KC Digital Drive launched the Hire KC Micro-Internship Program sponsored by Bank of America in the summer of 2022.
Micro-Internships are paid, professional projects that give students a chance to explore a variety of career paths and industries through a short-term engagement, and provide the KC region’s nonprofits with a unique opportunity to build capacity and get items off the to-do list while assessing students’ skills and quality of work. The program prioritizes students and recent graduates from the regional community colleges, and 4-year regional higher education institutions. Most Micro-Internships range from 10 – 40 hours, and students earn $20/hour for their work, which is covered by Hire KC through funding from Bank of America.
