What's Happening @ the Hub?

We often hear that an LSA degree opens many doors, but what exactly does that mean?

To kick off the start of this new school year, we’ll be exploring this question through a series of events, workshops, and learning tools, all listed below so you can emerge from this month with possibilities, ideas, or aspirations of where your U-M LSA degree can take you in the future!

If you’re a first-year student, a BIG welcome to the Hub! We are the college’s career exploration center. This roadmap of our services, opportunities, and resources is a great way to get started with the Hub!

If you’re a returning student, welcome back! Over the summer, the Hub officially retired the LSA Opportunity Network and launched LSA Engage in its place.

With LSA Engage:

  • RSVP for LSA-exclusive events like the ones listed below
  • Book time with a Hub coach to discuss your career interests
  • Apply to internships and other career opportunities 
  • Explore profiles of employers we’ve partnered with for recruiting events

But first — sign up for LSA Engage in order to access all these experiences, if you haven't already.

LSA students will drop in during this time to hear from a roundtable of representatives from companies spanning various industries. The purpose? To discover the range of career paths that an LSA degree unlocks.

  • Meet real professionals from top-ranked companies.
  • Ask questions from people whose careers you admire the most and tap into the power of their hard-earned wisdom and experience.
  • Get more 'hidden' insights from working professionals who broke into rapidly expanding industries.
  • Relish the possibility of gainging clarity into potential career paths. 

A list of confirmed employers in attendance will be shared closer to the event with students who RSVP.

What is networking? Why do professionals tout it as an all-important part of professional exploration and growth? LinkedIn reports that 61% of professionals agree that regular online interaction with their professional network can open up possible job opportunities. We’ll cover the essentials of how to introduce yourself, grow authentic connections, and build an active network before you graduate.

This live virtual discussion led by a Hub coach will:

  • Brainstorm effective introductory messages to employer represenatives, recruiters, alums, and others.
  • Introduce you to LSA Connect, the college’s career networking and mentoring platform.
  • Discuss your fears around networking and strategize on how to address them.
  • Identify what networks you already have access to and who you want to connect with.
