The Opportunity Hub helps you discover your path, then works with you to make sure you can walk it successfully by helping you find the right internship. @kleshem spent a recent summer at iHeartMedia in NYC, where she rotated through nine different departments as a national sales, marketing, and partnerships intern. Learning the in and outs of the entertainment and media industry helped solidify her interest in mass communications. Questions on how the Hub works for LSA students?

For a liberal arts student, an internship is one of the best ways to discover the career you want to commit to, said Kierra Trotter, the Hub's director of student engagement. You're testing different work environments and finding the best fit for your future. U-M LSA students can connect with the Opportunity Hub to explore their possibilities; email LSAemail@example.com. 📷 Matthew Pavlovic in Portugal
What's an easy way to make a good impression during an internship abroad? Make an effort to speak in the local language—however awkward it feels. It's an important way to show respect for people as a visitor in their country, says Jenny Chuang, the Opportunity Hub's global internship coordinator. Acquiring the new words to express yourself is easier said than done, though. I suggest keeping a small notebook to write down phrases you’ll need throughout the day, including survival language and ways to talk about yourself (like your major, interests, and where you’re from). And Google Translate and Forvo are super helpful tools you can use on your phone. #TipTuesday
The LSA Opportunity Hub offers the College’s students a distinctly liberal arts approach to finding their path. “Students will get access to more than 1,800 domestic and international internships, find funding so that any student can afford to have an internship experience, connect with alumni mentors and employers, and receive coaching to prepare for life and career possibilities,” writes Dean Andrew Martin.

“I was not sure what to expect before coming to Macedonia. Here, I am constantly aware of my race in a way that I haven’t truly been since I was younger. I have not had any negative reactions at all (but not knowing Macedonian I guess this could be false), but the stares are numerous whenever I leave the apartment. Perhaps surprisingly, however, instead of making me self-conscious or uncomfortable, for the most part, it constantly makes me reflect on how homogeneous Macedonia is and how little exposure there is to anyone different from them … My experience here so far has simply made me think about how nice it can be, personally, when I am surrounded by people who are not like me, when I can learn from people and help them learn from me as well.” Tap 👆🏾the link in bio to read more about Diarra’s internship experience in Macedonia this summer.

“As I emerged from the airport, the humidity hit like a truck and I sought refuge in the nearest taxi, which skillfully navigated the streets, densely packed with traffic. The driver, a trusting and friendly man—I’d soon learn this is a staple of Cambodian people—spoke, more to me than with me, about Cambodian politics. However, as I got out and paid he iterated not to tell anyone what he’d said of the government. Perhaps a confirmation that my internship here as a journalist is even more necessary than I’d anticipated.” Tap 👆🏾the link in bio to read more about Will’s internship experience.
