Career Strategy Essentials with the Office of Career Strategy (GSAS and Postdocs, Fall 2022)

Join OCS this fall for a series of career strategy workshops designed to help you navigate your career journey! We will introduce the many OCS resources at your disposal and cover essential skills like crafting a resume, building your professional network, and behavioral interviewing. You also will learn how to design a strong professional narrative that can be put into use at a conference, career fair or job interview.

We will kickoff the semester with two virtual bootcamps for GSAS students and postdocs followed by a series of interactive in-person sessions. Later in December we will then close our workshop series with a short session on improving your LinkedIn profile and headshot photoshoot to spruce up your professional online presence. Please join these workshops to gain practical and essential skills universal to job hunting for every career trajectory!

Final dates for in-person workshops will be announced at the beginning of September 2022. Please RSVP on Yale Career Link (click on “Events” to view GSAS career workshop series).
