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. 



As part of the Elections and Civil Society Program team, I have had the opportunity to work on voter education and election observation of Nepal’s historic Constituent Assembly Election of 2013 and after the major earthquakes in 2015, building the capacity of local civil society organizations to monitor the national reconstruction process. The interdisciplinary training I received at the Jackson Institute has put me in a position to work across programmatic areas at NDI and to effectively contribute to a range of programs such as parliamentary hearings, training of youth political leaders and helping the Government of Nepal develop its communication strategy for post-disaster reconstruction.
