Universia and Trabajando.com launch employment portal for Yale
The Universia-Trabajando.com Labor Community has developed an exclusive, customized employment portal for Yale University that provides its students and graduates with access to job and internship opportunities in various companies in Ibero-America.
Over 500 companies in seven Ibero-American countries — Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Spain — will use this multi-language channel (English and Spanish) to post job and internship vacancies, enabling members of the Yale community to find international employment opportunities.
The portal will provide access to employment opportunities in sectors such as telecommunications, banking, industry, energy, human resources, tourism, and many others, which will be posted on the Yale Employment Portal by multinational companies.
The initiative will enable companies to recruit the best talent from the renowned undergraduate and postgraduate schools at Yale, one of the world’s foremost universities.
Yale University is the first higher-education institution in the United States to join the Universia and Trabajando.com Labor Community, which has grown to become the primary tool used for job and internship searches in Latin America. The Universia and Trabajando.com Labor Community currently features over 250,000 job and internship opportunities.
The initiative represents a further step by the Universia–Trabajando.com Labor Community toward its goals of helping companies attract university talent and fostering employability by facilitating professional internships and first jobs.
The new employment portal is part of a collaboration agreement between Yale and Universia that was signed in 2013. In addition to furthering the development of Yale students’ careers in Ibero-America, the agreement stipulates that Universia will make the range of arts, science, and professional courses known as Open Yale Courses available on its platforms. To facilitate the Ibero-American community’s access to these courses, Universia will provide translations of select Open Yale Courses into Spanish and Portuguese.
Universia is also working with Yale to produce Spanish translations of the articles in Yale Environment 360, a magazine published at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
