Employers have a variety of ways to engage with colleges and universities to find student talent, as discussed in the podcast episode. One traditional method is through career fairs, where employers can interact with students and showcase their opportunities. Information sessions provide a platform for employers to talk about their organization, available positions, and how students can apply. Mock interviews and resume critiques offer valuable hands-on experience for students, helping them prepare for the job application process. 

One of the key trends discussed in the podcast episode is the rise of micro-internships. These micro-internships are project-based and short-term opportunities for students to gain valuable experience while allowing organizations to assess students without a long-term commitment. The concept of micro-internships has gained traction, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has highlighted the need for flexible and remote work arrangements. 

According to Don Snyder from the College of William & Mary, micro-internships typically last for a shorter duration, ranging from three to five weeks. These opportunities are skill-based, focusing on specific projects or tasks that organizations need to be completed within a short timeframe. Importantly, micro-internships are paid, providing students with a chance to contribute to real-world projects while earning compensation for their work.
