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. 



My summer internship was at the Ukrainian chapter of Transparency International, the global anti-corruption organization. The internship was an incredible opportunity to contribute to an NGO that was involved in implementing the legislative reforms that were passed after the 2014 Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine. A Yale alum provided the opportunity to interview for positions in Kyiv, and the Jackson Institute provided funding support for the endeavor after I secured the position.
