Student Employment Within the School
The School of Architecture offers students job opportunities within the School that cover a wide variety of needs. Current positions include woodshop or computer monitors, receptionists, exhibition installers, archivists, clerical workers, and Urban Design Workshop employees. It is not necessary to qualify for financial aid in order to hold any of the positions, although the earnings from these positions may be included in determining financial aid awards.

Student Employment Within the University
The Student Employment Office, 246 Church Street, is maintained to give assistance to self-supporting students in obtaining employment outside of the School but within the University during termtime. Student job listings at Yale can be found online at www.yale.edu/seo.

Employment Opportunities Outside the University
The School is often advised of various job opportunities outside the University that may interest architectural students, including work in local architectural offices, small architectural jobs, etc. These opportunities are posted for the convenience of students who may be seeking outside work.

International Student Employment Opportunities Outside the University During Enrollment and After Graduation
During full-time enrollment, international M.Arch. students at the School who hold F-1 visa status and who have been enrolled full-time for at least one full academic year may apply for the Curricular Practical Training (CPT) program, which provides the opportunity to be employed in the United States outside of the University.  During an academic year, CPT is limited to part-time (no more than 20 hours per week).  During summer breaks, CPT is available for only full-time employment. 

International M.Arch. students of the School who hold F-1 visa status may apply for the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, which provides the opportunity to be employed in the United States after graduation for a period of 12 months plus a 24-month STEM extension, for a total of 36 months, provided such employment begins within 60 days of graduation.

International M.E.D. students of the School who hold F-1 visa status and who have been enrolled full-time for at least one full academic year may apply for the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, which provides the opportunity to work in the United States outside of Yale for up to 12 months.
