Student organizations can provide students with the opportunity to complement classroom learning and develop social and professional skills that are beneficial in the workplace. Organizations can increase their visibility across campus and engage with students by connecting with students org leadership, volunteering time to attend and speak at a student org event, or even sponsor a registered student organization, their events, competitions, and other functions. We can introduce you to representatives of student organizations and help get the conversation started.
Classroom projects/presentations can provide your organization the opportunity to interact directly with students to provide your experience and expertise or who can help your organization work on developing innovative solutions to real-world challenges.
Micro-internships (also sometimes called micro-work experiences) are short-term, paid, professional projects that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Unlike traditional internships, Micro-Internships can take place year-round, ranging from 5 to 40 hours of work and are most often completed between one week and one months’ time. Micro-Internships are facilitated via the Parker Dewey platform, which connects current students and alumni with companies in need of support. Through micro-internships, you can share your time and expertise with the NSC community and show students how their classroom experiences connect to careers. And not only will you help current students and recent graduates gain experience and build valuable networks, but you will also get some work off your to-do list.
You will need to create an account through Parker Dewey in order to post your micro-internship. Parker Dewey does vet all micro-internship postings. If want to specifically recruit and hire NSC students for Micro-internships, make sure to select Nevada State College in the “Schools” section on your postings.
Volunteering is often a great way for students to gain experience, build their resume, and network on a flexible schedule. Volunteer opportunities can be posted through Handshake. Handshake is Nevada State’s only digital job/internship and volunteer board for students and alumni. If you don’t already have a Handshake account, contact our office to learn how to set one up and start posting your opportunities. **CSN and UNLV also use Handshake. Employers can connect with as many schools as they like when they create an account.** Due to the pandemic and rising cost of living, volunteer recruitment may be difficult at this time.
