Career Development

The Jackson Institute Office of Career Services provides resources and programs for students across Yale. 

We work closely with Jackson M.A. students in identifying sites for their required summer experiences and with job placement. We also offer guidance and resources to Global Affairs majors and other Yale undergraduates in support of their career goals. 

We can assist employers by identifying student talent from throughout the University in areas of global affairs.

For alumni, we host annual gatherings in the U.S. and abroad and offer career services and networking. We also encourage alumni to get involved as a career resource for current Yale students. 



At Yale, the flexibility of the Jackson M.A. program helped me gather the best from all the wonderful resources distributed across departments, and shape my very own "specialization" in development aid provided in conflict-affected areas. The expertise and great experience of Senior Fellows, such as Thomas Graham, were most "eye-opening," as were the possibilities to look at my region from a historic perspective with world-class historians such as Professor Timothy Snyder. Coming from a government policy background, the development economics courses helped me re-profile, and return to Moldova with an understanding of the modern development trends and challenges worldwide.
