Apply to be a G&P International Orientation Assistant with OISS this summer and early fall!

Do you have fond memories of your OISS Orientation when you first arrived at Yale? Or perhaps you have ideas on how to improve the experience for incoming international students? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you should consider applying to be an Orientation Assistant this summer and early fall with OISS!

G&P International Orientation Assistants (OAs) will work in a team of two to four to assist the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) in welcoming and orienting newly-arrived incoming international students. 

The three main areas of responsibility are:

  1. Assisting the OISS staff during scheduled orientation sessions at OISS.
  2. Posting discussion topics and blog-style posts to our pre-arrival portal on Yale Connect.
  3. Executing community building orientation programs and events for new graduate and professional students.

Those who serve as OAs should enjoy meeting and orienting new people, and serving as spirited ambassadors for Yale and New Haven. OAs will help set a welcoming tone by encouraging new arrivals and their accompanying families to explore and get to know the city and the university, and take part in orientation activities. Arrival and orientation weeks are the busiest times of the year, and it is essential that OAs be self-directed, energetic and ready to jump in where needed. Compensation is $16.25/hour.
