This week's #FlashInternship was spent connecting with some incredible @uofmichigan alums and experiencing the exciting world of Sports Media. It's been an immersive few days for our 12 Flash Interns, and today, they put all that they learned to work in our first ever LIVE sports broadcast! By the time we finished, everybody had drastically improved from getting that hands-on experience, which was absolutely invaluable. - Zane Harding, @umichlsa Junior Thank you to all of our decorated and generous @michiganalumni in the New York & Connecticut area for showing us the ropes and making it all possible! Go Blue! 〽️🗽
It's a beautiful night for baseball! Our Sports Media Flash Interns have had a busy couple of days connecting with our @michiganalumni and immersing themselves in the industry, but tonight, we're just hanging out as fans at New Britain Stadium, wrapping up Day 2 with a little @newbritainbees baseball before tomorrow's live #FlashIntern broadcast of a high school softball game ⚾️ #StayTuned
There's a lot more to broadcasts than what appears on screen! Our 12 Sports Media Flash Interns were at Ross Mobile Productions this afternoon getting some hands-on experience with all the professional equipment. When tech works well with production, that's when innovation happens. - Mitch Rubenstein, President and Executive Producer of Ross Mobile Productions, and @umichlsa Class of 1992 〽️🎥 #flashinternship
This flash internship has been an incredible experience thus far, and the devotion of the alumni we've interacted with has really shown, says sophomore @kimxmorales . She's one of twelve @umichlsa students diving into the sports media industry this week. At today's tour with @nbcsports , I was able to see how the network broadcasts events like the Olympics. It has been very impactful to see how many people and their diverse roles make it happen. Click the link in our bio to learn more about this Sports Media #flashinternship
Our star-studded @michiganalumni panel passed on a wealth of knowledge to our 12 Sports Media Flash Interns today! A theme that kept coming up: curiosity. You do your job and you do your homework, but you have to be curious. When you have that enthusiasm, that goes a long, long way, says @nbc reporter and @uofmichigan alum Andrea Joyce. She is just one of the outstanding alums contributing to our #flashinternship this week in New York City and Connecticut. Two more exciting days still to come!
Our first order of business: a tour of Citi Field, home of the @mets !! We got to explore the Production Room, Writer's Room, Press Conference Room, and oh yeah, we also took the field for a little photoshoot ⚾️ 🍎 This was an amazing experience, and an opportunity that we were so lucky to get. You see the press room when you're watching TV, but to actually be in there kind of inspires you. - Sergio Villaseñor, @umichlsa Junior
We're taking on New York City with 12 LSA students for our Sports Media Flash Internship! Over the next few days, these flash interns will be meeting and networking with alums from all across the industry. From learning about On-Air roles, to seeing the production scene, to producing their own live broadcast, they're in for an incredible 3 days! Follow us on the @umichlsa story today and Friday, and on the @uofmichigan story tomorrow #flashinternship #sportsmedia
For Matt Idema, chief operating officer at @whatsapp and a @uofmichigan grad, an internship helped set him on his path—but not in the way he expected. “I thought I wanted to be an engineer, but then I did my first internship and realized I didn’t want to do it for a career.” He learned he thrived in environments of change, not routine, and found his niche in the always-evolving tech industry. Idema is one of many alums working with 12 @umichlsa students this week in the middle of their own pivotal career moment: the Hub's flash internship in Silicon Valley. Check out our Q&A with Idema via link in bio.
Visiting @uofmichigan alums at @Facebook headquarters today, where we learned how valuable these grads have found their Michigan relationships to be, in their careers and personal lives. “You form relationships at Michigan that are hard to form at any other time in your life,” said Nikki Sokol, a ‘95 political science grad. “You’re able to connect with people who feel this special bond and it can carry you far.” #FlashInternship
