Post A Job

Many organizations have enjoyed great success in attracting Yale talent as a result of posting in our password protected job database Yale Career Link, powered by Symplicity. Through this system, employers can advertise opportunities to students and alumni of Yale College, the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the Postdoctoral scholars.

FAQ: What types of jobs can be posted on Yale Career Link?

Students interested in all types of positions use Yale Career Link as their first stop in the search process. Employers may post full-time career positions, internships and project-based work opportunities on the platform. Enhance the attractiveness of your positions by providing a complete, up-to-date company profile with contact information on Yale Career Link.

FAQ: How do I navigate the job posting system?

Log in at Yale Career Link. If you have not previously used the system, select “Sign Up” on the home page. Once your registration is approved by our office, you will be able to post jobs and internships directly to the system. Upon logging in, go to ‘Create Job Posting’, found under the ‘Job Postings’ header on the bottom right of your homepage. Follow the prompted instructions and please be thorough when submitting information for the position. All job and internship postings are subject to approval. Note that we do not accept postings from third party recruiters. For questions, please email careerstrategy@yale.edu.

FAQ: Are there fees to post a job on Yale Career Link?

Employers wishing to post full-time jobs, or internship opportunities, are charged a nominal fee, as follows:

  • For profit organizations: $30 per each posting
  • Nonprofit, government organizations and NGOs: no charge

Please note 100% of the job posting fees goes to the Travel Reimbursement Fund, which assists students traveling for arts auditions, interviews with non-profit and government organizations, post-graduate fellowships and on-site graduate school interviews.

"After multiple rounds of online applications, I was finally granted an interview for my dream fellowship. Thanks to the travel reimbursement process, I was able to take a train to Princeton to interview in-person for the final round. I’m incredibly grateful for this program — it helped demonstrate my commitment to the fellowship and played an instrumental role in my acceptance." – Nick Zevallos YC ’19

"The Travel Reimbursement Program was enormously helpful during my audition process for graduate school in music. I am beyond grateful to the donors who made it possible. While many graduate schools in the sciences provide travel stipends for interviews, schools in the arts generally do not do the same. Auditions are high-pressure undertakings, and having some relief from the associated financial stress was invaluable. I hope that the program can be sustained and augmented for future classes to expand access to careers in the arts." – Rishi Mirchandani YC ‘19

FAQ: What is a Micro-internship and how do I post one?

Micro-internships provides organizations with a competitive advantage when recruiting Yale students. By offering these short-term assignments, you can gain early access to high-potential students, support your diversity and inclusion efforts, and enhance your brand on campus, all of which lead to improved hiring outcomes. Micro-Internships don’t replace your existing internship program or on-campus recruiting efforts, and hiring managers value the immediate support making it easy to engage them in these mutual auditions. You can learn more or get started by visiting Parker Dewey's Yale landing page.

What are Micro-Internships?
Micro-Internships are short-term, professional assignments, comparable to those tasks that could be given to a new hire or a summer intern – some common examples are content creation, industry research, data cleansing, and social media support. Typical Micro-Internships require 5-40 hours of work by the student (in total), are typically due a few days to a few weeks out, and can be completed remotely. Companies set the fixed price the student will be paid for each Micro-Internship (often between $150 and $600 depending on the scope) and select who they want.

Whether a student is already interested in roles at your organization or has never considered them, the short-term nature and low commitment of Micro-Internships allow both you and students to authentically engage and explore fit. As a result, you can both expand the pool of potential candidates, while also focusing your efforts on those with whom there is mutual interest based upon these real, professional interactions.

How it Works
Offering Micro-internships is easy. They can be created on demand, and there are no commitments or administrative burdens as the Micro-interns are not your employees, interns, or contractors. If you are interested in learning more about how the Micro-Internships work and can serve as an invaluable component of your campus recruiting efforts, you can schedule time directly here.

Quote: “Pamir Law Group has hosted between 3 to 5 Yale summer interns for each of the prior 7 years. The interns have worked with colleagues in Shanghai and Taipei on a variety of client and firm projects. Each intern brings a unique set of characteristics, talents, virtues, skills and personalities. Our colleagues love working with them because of their enthusiasm, energy, brilliance and drive. It is rejuvenating to work closely with so many hopeful and committed interns and to be part of their journey to make the world a better place.” – Nick Chen, Pamir Law, Shanghai, China/Taipei, Taiwan (B.A., Yale College, 1979)

“I have had the pleasure of working with Yale interns over a number of years. They have been eager to learn, putting in the hours needed to gain the context needed to deliver something of real value. Their intelligence and integrity have been beyond reproach. At the same time, it has felt good to give these young people a chance to gain some real work experience in what is often a completely new context for them.” – Saul Kornik, Africa Health Placements, Johannesburg, South Africa (Greenberg World Fellow 2013)

Recruiting Policies & Guidelines

Point: These policies & guidelines apply to all employers recruiting Yale students, whether on or off-campus.

Offer Timing: Yale’s Office of Career Strategy recommends that employers provide students four (4) weeks to decide on an offer or until the date below, whichever is later. 

Employers extending full time offers as a result of a previous summer internship, and employers extending offers through the fall (including offers for summer 2020 start dates), are encouraged to provide students until November 1, 2019 to decide. We ask that employers consider reasonable requests for additional time on a case by case basis.

Public Service/Public Interest Exception: Candidates may request that an employer extend the deadline to accept an employer's offer until as late as April 1, 2020 if the candidate is actively pursuing positions with public interest, government organizations or a national fellowship award. Candidates may hold open only one offer in such circumstances. Employers are encouraged to grant such requests.

Yale University Non-Discrimination Policy: Yale University is committed to a policy against discrimination based upon age, color, handicap or disability, ethnic or national origin, race, religion, religious creed, gender (including discrimination taking the form of sexual harassment), marital, parental or veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or the prejudice of clients. All employers using the services of the Office of Career Strategy, including interview programs and online job postings, are required to abide by this policy.

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Guidelines: Employers seeking to recruit Yale students for internships and jobs, whether through on-campus activities or independent recruiting processes, are expected to follow Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines, as indicated by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Professional Standards for University Relations and Recruiting, in addition to Yale's guidelines outlined elsewhere on this website.
