Bulldogs On The Lakes (BOTL) is a Summer Internship Program for Yale and Wesleyan Undergraduates. Located in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, BOTL is branch of the Bulldogs Across America (BAA) Internships. 2012 will be our sixth year in the BAA Program and we are look forward to another great summer hosting interns in interesting and rewarding jobs throughout the Twin Cities.
Summer in the Twin Cities
Most Minnesotans spend Summer outside at concerts, festivals, outdoor cafes, parks or lakes. Minneapolis and St. Paul have many bike trails that wind along the Mississippi River and connect with several large lakes in town. For students who may not be familiar with this type of Summer climate or in-town amenities, we encourage you to come to the Twin Cities. Part of our initial orientation will include an introduction to several of our more popular outdoor activities easily accessible to BOTL interns.
Students: Join us for a summer you won't forget. Apply
International Students: You will need to apply for permission from immigration to work off campus (Optional Practical Training) to engage in a BAA internship. OPT applications can take up to three months for immigration to process, so advance planning is required. These applications must be submitted through the Office of International Students and Scholars. For full information on the OPT application process go to http://www.yale.edu/oiss/

A Focus on Non-Profit Employment Opportunities
In the past, almost all of our interns were employed in non-profit or public service related position and we hope to find similar jobs in 2011. Our focus on non-profits stems from our belief that undergraduate education should include hands-on experience in this important sector of our society.In addition to rewarding employment opportunities BOTL activities add significant value to our Summer internships.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Bulldogs concept, here is how it works:
BOTL is a 10 week program.
