Launched Nov. 22, 2017

Northeastern Illinois University Alumni Association is proud to launch a new initiative to help alumni across generations build authentic relationships.

Through the use of short-term projects, or what we like to call “micro-internships,” experienced alumni can provide opportunities for NEIU students and recent alumni to work on real professional assignments. In order to drive this initiative, NEIU has partnered with Parker Dewey, a mission-oriented, local organization aiming to improve the college-to-career transition for all stakeholders.

Get ready to post, get ready to apply! Parker Dewey is your one-stop shop for opportunities to bolster your resume, explore various career paths, and make some extra money.
