“MIT is more than a school. If you want to be a part of something big, this is the place”.


“It’s more than just an employer, it’s a community. When someone says they’ve been here 25 years, it’s not like 25 years at a corporate organization, because you might have had five completely different careers here.”


I arrived here a soldier and I’m a veteran now and a strong veterans' advocate. What I like most about working at MIT is the commitment level and passion of everyone here. You don’t have to be a PHD or a rocket scientist to contribute here”.
