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.
