Internships are Career-building Experiences

The internship experience is an investment towards your future. If you are looking for an opportunity to explore potential career paths that complement your interests and educational background, consider an internship at Yale.

Why Intern at Yale?

Most people know Yale as a renowned global teaching and research university with world-class libraries and museums and home to famous graduates, professors, and Nobel prize winners. This is all true. It’s also true that it takes many talented administrative and operational people –from IT, Human Resources, Finance, Business Operations and more–to support the teaching and research mission of the university.

Yale is deeply committed to its New Haven Community Hiring Initiative and provides internship opportunities for eligible candidates. Once accepted into an internship program, you can expect to gain valuable real-world work experience at a world-class higher education institution. In addition to helping identify candidates for future hiring, a Yale internship:

  • Builds your resume and work experience
  • Develops your skills and competencies
  • Provides opportunities to network
