Empower your people with training that keeps you on the cutting-edge
You can’t afford to sit back when it comes to your company’s training and retention practices. The last few years have left their mark on businesses, and those who aren’t willing to adapt will be challenged to succeed. It all takes skills to keep up.
When you devote time to empowering your people you:
- Retain a more satisfied workforce that’s better qualified for advancement and retention.
- See overall improved company performance.
- Have fewer expenses onboarding new employees because you can train your existing ones and keep them engaged.
- Improve the skills of c-suite employees resulting in better leadership and more diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplaces.

Host A Micro-Internship
UVM students are creative, capable world citizens – and they make excellent employees.
Micro-internships offer a proven way for your company to connect with PACE students who are interested in working on short-term, paid, professional projects and for you to build flexible workforce capacity.
What is a micro-internship?
A micro-internship is a short-term professional assignment. Unlike traditional internships, these paid projects can be offered at any point during the year, typically range from 10 – 40 hours of work, and are due to be completed within a week to a month from the time they are posted.
How will micro-internships benefit my company?
Beyond offering opportunities for PACE students to gain experience and demonstrate their skills, Micro-Internships also provide you or your colleagues with immediate support on short-term tasks. In addition, Micro-Internships support your recruiting efforts, helping you identify, assess, and build relationships with students who may be prospective job candidates.
Micro-Internships can be completed across all departments including:
- Human Resources
PACE has partnered with Parker Dewey to help enhance talent sourcing and candidate selection for micro-internships. Employers utilize our Parker Dewey page to create an account, post projects, and search for prospective student candidates. Through this system, students are not your employees or contractors, making it easy to provide these opportunities on demand.
