Coaching

Hub coaches work with you to identify your aspirations and co-create a plan for how to reach them.

However you interact—whether through a quick drop-in session, a more focused one-on-one appointment, or a small group workshop—coaches empower you to develop your professional identity. Together, you’ll design a strategy for fulfilling the goals and aspirations you have for yourself. 

Some of the topics you might explore are:

  • Figuring out your career interests
  • Goal setting
  • Funding options for internships
  • Internship preparation and search
  • Interview preparation
  • Graduate school
  • Volunteer, research, and other hands-on experience
  • Connecting with LSA alumni
  • Building your brand
  • Résumé, cover letter, personal statement, or portfolio
  • And more ....

Drop-in Hours

Stop by during drop-in hours to meet with a coach for 20 minutes or less for any of the topics above. These informal sessions are also a great place to start if you’re still figuring out what you want to work on. 

Monday–Thursday | 9–11:45 a.m. 
We're located on the second floor of the LSA Building (500 S. State St., across from UMMA) in Suite 2005.

One-on-One Appointments

A 45-minute one-on-one appointment is a chance to go more in-depth with a coach, in-person or virtually. If there are specific materials you want to discuss, it’s helpful to have them ready on your laptop or in print.

Make an appointment by emailing lsa-opphub@umich.edu, calling 734-763-4674, or visiting the Hub between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Small Group Coaching

Join your fellow LSA students in a group setting to explore how to develop a professional identity that fits who you are and where you want to be.
