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.

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. The experience is offered at no cost for students thanks to the dedication of our donors.

During a flash internship, students will:

  • Learn about industries like entertainment, nonprofits, finance, tech, and the arts 
  • Gain hands-on experience completing a project related to the work of the organization
  • Network and develop authentic relationships with both industry professionals and their
  • 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.
