Benefits

Joining the program unlocks access to benefits throughout the internship process:

  • Industry-Specific Knowledge: You’ll get to participate in workshops about industry trends, issues, and opportunities and will receive tailored guidance on how to navigate your field and become a standout intern. 

  • Membership in an Industry-based Cohort: You’ll join a group of peers who are exploring similar industries and be able to learn together, network with one another, and support each other throughout the internship experience and beyond.

  • Invitations to Exclusive Events & Programming: Following your internship experience, you’ll receive access to private events with LSA alumni and exclusive professional development opportunities.

Who Qualifies

Program Requirements

LSA students who accept an internship within the Hub Internship Program must commit to the following:

  • Completion of the full internship (exceptions may be made in the event of an emergency)

  • Timely communication with the employer and Opportunity Hub staff

  • Participation in the Hub Internship Program programming, which includes an orientation event, 2 - 3 workshops (in-person and virtual formats), a virtual midpoint check-in with an Internship Program Coordinator, and a post-internship event

  • Participation in an online YellowDig community, which requires short blog posts about your internship and interaction with posts by peers

How to Apply

Before you apply to internships within the Hub Internship Program: 

1. Review the Program Requirements (above). If you are unable to commit to these requirements it is best to apply to non-Hub internships. 

2. Consider meeting with a Hub Coach to ensure your resume, cover letter, and other application materials are up to date, properly formatted, and a strong representation of your experiences and accomplishments.
