The Office of Career Strategy and the Yale in Hollywood Club, an alumni group involved in the entertainment industry and part of the Yale Club of Southern California, have collaborated to offer internship opportunities and streamline the internship search process for students interested in an introduction to the various components of the film industry: talent management & representation, production, screenwriting & editing, story line generation, and various business aspects. Students will receive guidance from industry professionals as they develop their networking skills and develop a base of contacts that are integral to finding further opportunities in the film & entertainment industry.
Events will be planned during the summer including receptions and networking events with alumni in Southern California in order to provide students with an opportunity to establish a solid network in the entertainment industry and begin developing mentoring relationships with alumni. A major component of success in Hollywood is building relationships with a network of people that will lead to future opportunities.
All interested employers are invited to register for this program and post their internship opportunities through the Employer link of the Yale Career Link, powered by Symplicity. An alternate Yale in Hollywood submission survey is also available.
Internships are open to all current Yale College students. Internship duration, start and end dates will be negotiated with each employer.
To apply you must first view the Office of Career Strategy Internship Program Tutorial available in the Yale Career Link. You must complete the entire tutorial to access the registration form. Internships will be posted in Yale Career Link, powered by Symplicity starting in early spring for summer opportunities.
Tip: Some employers may inquire about whether a student can receive academic credit for the internship. Yale College does not award academic credit for internships. This policy is not unique to Yale; it is shared by many other institutions. You may request a letter stating Yale's policies through the Office of Career Strategy, which is usually sufficient for the employer. For more information, visit the Academic Credit Section of the Office of Career Strategy Website.
