What if you could explore a career over the course of 72 hours? That’s the premise of the Opportunity Hub’s flash internships.
Flash internships are fast-paced, on-site experiences that provide students a chance to work and network with the top professionals in a given field. These one- to five-day engagements are more than just a fly by—they’re insider, hands-on experiences with depth that shape students’ decisions about the careers they’ll pursue.
LSA students explore whether a career is a right fit for them, and if so, what it takes to break into it. Thanks to the dedication of our donors, this experience is fully funded for all student participants.
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 peers
- Gain feedback from potential employers on what steps to take to break into the field
Flash internships are open exclusively to LSA students; check back here for updates and application deadlines.
