Flash Internships

What if you could explore a career over the course of a weekend?

That’s the premise of the Opportunity Hub’s flash internships.

Flash internships are rapid, on-site experiences that provide students a chance to work and network with the top professionals in a given field. The experience is completely free to students thanks to the dedication of our donors.

During their one to five days on the job, LSA students explore whether a career is a right fit for them, and if so, what it takes to break into it.

During a flash internship, students will:

  • Learn about industries like finance, tech, and the arts from leaders in the field, many of whom are Michigan alums
  • Gain hands-on experience solving a case study for the company
  • Network and develop authentic relationships with industry professionals
  • Gain feedback from potential employers on what steps to take to break into the field

Flash internships are open exclusively to LSA students; to view details or apply to upcoming experiences, click the program opportunities below.
