micro internships

We are now accepting applications for short-term internships with companies throughout the Chicagoland area. Spend a day or a weekend with a motorsports professional. Micro internships are a quick way to gain exposure to work experience in a professional environment.

Several of our internships are available at track events hosted by NASA Great Lakes. Interns work for a weekend with companies directly involved in supporting customers who attend these motorsports events.

 

Please see the NASA Great Lakes schedule below.
