There are excellent opportunities for organizations to create a presence at Yale and engage with students in Yale College, the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the postdoctoral scholars. Please contact the Employer Relations team to discuss a customized recruiting strategy.
Important Notes about Fall 2021 Recruiting:
We understand that many of our employer partners are beginning to plan for Fall 2021 recruiting. In light of the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to share as much as we know pertaining to plans for the Fall recruiting cycle.
Students and Staff On-Campus
Yale plans to have a fully residential program for undergraduates, on-campus studies for graduate and professional school students, and a return to on-campus activities for faculty and staff. The realization of these plans will depend on favorable public health conditions and the guidance of public health experts.
Recruiting Activities to Remain Virtual
Because of the number of unknowns about what types of gatherings will be permitted, and if visitors will be allowed on campus, we will be conducting recruiting events on a virtual basis for Fall 2021. This will include career fairs and networking events, information sessions, meeting with student organizations, and other meet-ups. We will delay making firm plans for the Spring 2022 term until later in the year.
A word of caution for employers who might consider holding events in New Haven at hotels, or other public meeting places. It is possible that the University could place restrictions on students attending off-campus events. We will keep you informed just as soon as this information is available.
Please visit https://covid19.yale.edu/ for other Yale information and announcements concerning COVID-19.
Attend a Career Fair
In lieu of one large career fair, we host 9+ industry-specific networking and recruiting events throughout the year. The majority of these events take place during the fall semester. Please note these events will be virtual in 2020 – 2021. Employers should visit the 2020 -2021 Recruiting Calendar, review our Offer Guidelines and contact us at email@example.com or at 203-432-0804.
Host a Virtual Coffee Chat
Employers may host individual events for students throughout the year on-campus, or remotely. These events may include coffee chats or office hours, at a local New Haven cafe or virtually. Events are promoted through Yale Career Link where students can view a list of upcoming individual employer events. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 203-432-0804.
Interview Students on Campus
OCS offers a robust on-campus interview program and many other ways to recruit Yale talent. The Employer Relations Team will work with you to create a customized recruiting strategy to meet your needs. Employers are encouraged to visit our 2020 – 2021 Recruiting Calendar, our Offer Guidelines and contact us at email@example.com or at 203-432-0804 to get started.
Post a Job
Many organizations attract Yale talent by posting in our password protected job database Yale Career Link, powered by Symplicity. Employers may post full-time positions, internships and project-based opportunities.
Log in at Yale Career Link. If you are new to the system, select “Sign Up” on the home page. Once your registration is approved, you will be able to post directly. Upon logging in, go to ‘Create Job Posting’, found under the ‘Job Postings’ header on the bottom right of your homepage. Follow the prompted instructions and please be thorough when submitting position information. All job and internship postings are subject to approval. We do not accept postings from third party recruiters. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 203-432-0804 for assistance.
Job Posting Fees and Travel Reimbursement Program
- For-profits: $30 each posting. Fees are waived for employers with a Yale alum on their team.
- Nonprofits and government: no charge
100% of these fees benefit the Travel Reimbursement Fund, assisting students that travel for arts auditions, interviews with non-profits and government, post-graduate fellowships, and graduate school interviews.
The Travel Reimbursement Program was enormously helpful during my graduate school audition. I am beyond grateful to those who made it possible. While graduate schools in the sciences provide stipends for interviews, schools in the arts generally don’t. I hope the program can be sustained to expand access to careers in the arts. –Rishi Mirchandani YC ‘19
Yale Alums & Preferred Yale Partners
Are you a Yale alum, parent, faculty, fellow, or other Yale affiliate? If so, we invite you to post a professional opportunity for Yale students and alums as a Preferred Yale Partner.
The Preferred Yale Partners model allows alums and other Yale affiliates to work closely with a Yale team member to post their position and market it to students through top promotion.
For more information about this program, contact Denise Byrnes, Associate Director, Office of Career Strategy.
Consider Posting a Micro-internship
Micro-internships provide organizations with a competitive advantage when recruiting Yale students. By offering short-term assignments, you gain early access to high-potential students, support your diversity and inclusion efforts, and enhance your brand on campus. Micro-internships can be created on demand, and there are no long term commitments or administrative burdens.
Common examples include content creation, industry research, data cleansing, and social media support. Typical projects require 5-40 total hours, are due within a few days or weeks, and can be completed remotely. Companies select their candidate and set the payment, usually $150 – $600 depending on scope.
