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 career search resources and support. 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. 



Having worked in research at an Icelandic financial institution, I came to Jackson to seek out resources that would prepare me for a global career in economic and financial policy. Stephen Roach, Senior Fellow and my mentor at Jackson, provided me with great support in terms of my career search and relevant academic path. The guidance of such an experienced and renowned financial and economic professional, as well as the availability of Yale alumni at global institutions I met at career events, was vital in securing my internship at Morgan Stanley Research.
