YC Career Outcomes

The Office of Career Strategy collects information about Yale College graduates. This tool allows users to search outcomes by year and major. Please visit Statistics & Reports for more information on our data collection.

Helpful Tips for the Interactive Tool:

  • There is no Enter or Submit Button, results will appear automatically with your selections
  • Choose ‘All Years’ or ‘All Majors’ for results across years and majors, or check one for more granular results.
  • The tool will return results with at least five responses, for small majors, choosing ‘All Years’ is more likely to show results
  • Default results will show the most recent Class Year.
  • Uncheck the selected major(s) to reset your search.
  • To ensure confidentiality, results are reported in the aggregate and more granular data is not available through this tool.
  • First Destination Summaries are based on the knowledge rate of graduate outcomes six months after graduation according to National Association of Colleges and Employers guidelines.
