There are countless on-line career resources, and OCS has created a structured way for students to easily navigate many of the most helpful online tools.
There are many online resources that Yale students and graduates can use in their job searches. This searchable database includes resources that OCS staff, Yale students, and Yale alumni have found particularly useful. Individual employer sites are not included, rather this database includes sites with job listings, employer directories, career advice, and links to other useful resources.
Each year the Office of Career Strategy hosts over one hundred programs and workshops for students to learn about careers and graduate programs, interact with professionals, and build basic career skills. OCS offers a variety of workshops and career panels to support students with their career development.
International students desiring to work in the U.S. typically face an additional layer of complexity and difficulty. While international students are permitted to work in the US according to specific regulations, many employers are not willing to incur the time and expense of sponsoring an H-1 visa. In addition, as a foreign national you are not permitted to work for the U.S. federal government, most state and local governments, or for private contractors working for the U.S. government.
