Requirements and Timelines
The LSA Opportunity Hub exists to serve undergraduate students exclusively.
To participate in any recruiting or engagement activities at the Opportunity Hub, the following is required by all recruiters:
Have current hiring needs and provide updated job descriptions for all openings. All companies participating in a recruiting event must have their current job descriptions posted on LSA Engage, the college’s career platform.
Provide legitimate internship or professional opportunities that are appropriate for students pursuing degrees in the liberal arts and sciences.
Provide accurate information about their organization and opportunities.
Follow the Equal Employment Opportunity laws established by the federal and Michigan State governments.
Adhere to all previously stated recruiting policies.
The Opportunity Hub reserves the right to deny or revoke services to any organization at any time for not adhering to the policies and guidelines that we have set forth. If it is discovered that an organization is engaging in any hiring practices that go against the Opportunity Hub’s Employer Engagement Policy, the organization will be contacted in writing with an explanation of why privileges have been removed and guidance on appropriate next steps for reinstation if eligible.
If you have any questions for the Employer Engagement Team at the Opportunity Hub, please contact us at email@example.com.
To request an Individual Recruiting Visit, please log in to your LSA Engage employer profile and request to “Host an Event.” Requests must be received a minimum of 21 days before the proposed date to allow time for scheduling and marketing to students. This timeline also allows the Opportunity Hub to meet the needs of all of our constituents effectively.
Once you have submitted your request, please allow 48 hours for a member of the Employer Engagement Team to review your request. You will then receive communication to indicate the status of your request.
If your request is less than 21 days out, or if you are unsure of which option would be most appropriate for your organization's needs, please contact the Hub’s Employer Engagement team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a consultation.

About the Hub's Internship Program
Neither the University of Michigan nor by extension, the LSA Opportunity Hub, can sign or enter into academic affiliation agreements, internship agreements, or other types of legally binding documents with employers for internships or experiential learning opportunities undertaken by LSA undergraduate students. This is due to the lack of university involvement, control, and oversight of the employer’s internship U-M is unable to enter into internship agreements wherein U-M is undertaking legal commitments, obligations, and liabilities unless U-M has direct involvement/control/oversight of the internship. LSA Opportunity Hub does not have such direct involvement/control/oversight of the internship; therefore, there is no basis for U-M to enter into any agreements.
If the student is enrolled in ALA 225 (Undergraduate Internship Course), the LSA Opportunity Hub can, with the student's written permission, confirm to a third party that the student is indeed enrolled in ALA 225 at the time of writing. The university grants credit for that course based on coursework completed rather than for work performed for an employer.
