Hire a remote intern today

Think of this flexible internship opportunity as freelance, project-based work. Students can complete micro-internships by working remotely on a special short-term project, or complete a full 10–12 week internship.

With flexible hours, the amount of time students work can vary to meet the needs of your organization during this unusual time. HRSM students are trained in analytical reasoning, finance and accounting, marketing, human resources, policy examination, service management and strategic management for various business environments. HRSM student interns can help you meet your business goals by working remotely or in a combination of on-site and online environments.

Remote internship benefits

HRSM interns can:

  • Help you with focused support on priority projects while requiring no housing, office space or equipment costs for you.
  • Offer fresh and innovative ideas to bring to your projects. You'll have access to a large, diverse talent pool.
  • Work by a flexible timeline (typically 10 weeks, but can be customized).
  • Support your business needs in customer service, e-commerce, event planning, HR and talent management, inventory planning, market research, merchandise management and planning, business analysis, project management, recovery marketing planning, revenue management, sales, social media, ticketing and training and development.
