If you are open to a range of positions and willing to relocate, you can search for 'Yahoo careers' on one of the above search engines for a high volume of results.

Yahoo Job Applications
Once you find a position of interest at Yahoo!, create your profile, download your resume, and apply through the website. If you have a LinkedIn profile, you may also apply using your account. Once your application is received, you will be notified by email. If human resources (HR) thinks you might be a match, you will be contacted for either a phone or in-person interview.

There is also a job search alert, where you can submit your resume and keywords to be alerted if a job matching your interests becomes available. The HR department also scans available resumes for appropriate candidates.

Students from schools where Yahoo! recruits can submit their resumes through their career center. Applicants attending other schools can apply directly through the website by searching for opportunities, creating a profile, and submitting a resume.

Yahoo Internships

Yahoo offers a range of internships with competitive wages for students interested in learning about careers in digital media. At Yahoo!, students gain excellent experience while also learning the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the industry and in the corporate landscape.

To that end, the internships reflect what it would be like to work at the company on a day-to-day basis. A successful internship could even become a full-time job. At the very least, the placement cultivates the skills, experience, and contacts that will help the intern to land a great job at another company.
