Finding Remote Work

Updated: Jun 2

Explore two new resources that connect students to remote work and consider opportunities that allow you to gain experience while working from home this summer.


You are invited to take part in short-term, remote, professional, paid work experiences through a Micro-Internship or externship. Demonstrate your skills, explore career paths, and develop your professional networks, all while working remotely 5-40 hours a week.


Micro-Internships can include projects across all departments, including:

  • Sales

  • Human Resources

  • Strategy

  • Marketing

  • Research

  • Operations and Support

  • Finance and Accounting


Instructions

Use the links below to explore internships or externships with Lehigh Connects and Paragon One. Both are also accessible from the Handshake resource tile, remote work and virtual skill building. You will need to submit a request for an application or set up an account to access the opportunities. There are no fees for students for these services. Please also have a resume ready for the application process.

Browse short-term, virtual projects sponsored by Lehigh alumni. Projects are typically posted during winter and summer break to allow you to complete the work between semesters. Many projects are paid and all projects are great opportunities to grow your skills while working closely with an alumni.



Paragon One student feedback

  • I like the feature that allowed me to sign up to receive updates on jobs that aligned with my major, which I think will be helpful in gauging future opportunities

  • I liked that it had the opportunities right off the bat and liked the options much better

  • I think Paragon One might made navigating very easy

  • I felt limited in the opportunities since there were only a few listed for each of the categories


Alumni Advice

Elizabeth Altman, B.S. Accounting, Class of 2005, shared her insight on remote work saying “A lot of my internship work was spent arranging data into Excel, working on PowerPoint presentations, and conducting tons of research. All of these tasks can be done remotely. Obviously for the large Corporations which have formal programs (for instance Ernst & Young and Goldman Sachs where I interned while at Lehigh) have training programs that can now be done remotely via zoom. And after those programs, it is easy enough for managers to communicate with their new teams using Internet tools.”

Encouraging other alum to find ways to support students by creating remote internships, she advises “for small business owners like myself, especially if you work from home like I do, it now opens up the opportunity to give someone an internship that I wouldn’t have been able to have otherwise.”
