Internships, Jobs & Opportunities
At Elon Hillel, we create connections for our Jewish students to summer jobs and internship opportunities, programs in the Jewish community, opportunities in Israel, and post-graduate jobs and internships.
It is part of the mission of Jewish Life to prepare students for life beyond college as leaders and community members, and the team is available as mentors, coaches, and advisors to our community.
