  • Must possess good communication skills and leadership skills 
  • Must be able to commit to full participation 
  • Must be able to assist with setup and breakdown of events

Job Description: The Tsai CITY Summer Operations Coordinators are the first to greet students who are authorized to use the new building over the summer and answer any inquiries. They will staff the front desk during building hours, answer questions, trouble-shoot technology and other inquiries, and consult with Tsai CITY full-time staff members on issues and questions as needed. On a day-to-day basis, Summer Operations Coordinators will help the Tsai CITY staff maintain a safe working environment for authorized students and may also be asked to help with program and event management and logistics, weigh in on important operations considerations, and create an inclusive and collaborative environment at CITY.


Summer Specialist

10-20 hours/week | June 1 - August 20, 2021

In Summer 2021, Tsai CITY will hire up to 14 Yale students to support student entrepreneurial ventures with their most pressing needs, in conjunction with the Tsai CITY Summer Fellowship. These projects cover a wide set of fields and require a variety of professional skills. In all cases, they will provide students with the uniquely valuable experience of working with an early stage venture. This is a fantastic opportunity for students excited about entrepreneurship and innovation who want to work for an existing, peer-led venture. Student workers will collaborate closely with the ventures and check in occasionally with Tsai CITY staff.

·         Passionate about entrepreneurship (but not necessarily working on a venture)

·         Self-starter who can stay organized with limited direction

·         Specific requirements will vary based on the projects being offered
