Creating a Recruiting Strategy

Whether you are considering posting a position, recruiting through the on-campus recruiting program, or participating in one of the Yale-coordinated internship programs, the Office of Career Strategy team is available to assist you in creating a recruiting strategy. Note that employers posting unpaid internship positions must refer to the U.S. Department of Labor Guidelines on unpaid internships to determine whether their programs meet the stated criteria.

Pin: Internships are defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as "a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent."

The Yale-coordinate​d Internship Programs for Employers

Yale-coordinated Internships support Yale students in their transition from student to professional, and facilitate career exploration and personal independence. The programs immerse students in a substantive professional experience for at least 8 weeks during the summer in a variety of locations. Student interns receive continuous professional guidance and support from Career Strategy staff through one-on-one advising, virtual group advising, professional development emails, and on-campus programming before and after the experience. Please see our Summer 2017 Yale-coordinated Internships Employer Guidebooks below for more information:

The Office of Career Strategy supports participating employers in numerous ways: crafting internship descriptions, reviewing interview/offer timelines, and assisting during the internship period. If you have questions related to the Yale Career Link, please review the following guides and contact OCS: Reviewing Resumes & Making an Offer and How to Send Batch Emails in Yale Career Link.
