PhDs & Postdocs

Where will your PhD take you?

Your PhD has equipped you not only with specialized expertise in your discipline, but also with a strong transferable skill-set that may be applied to a range of careers. At Yale, there are many ways to learn about the diverse paths that PhDs and others have taken outside of the academy, and to explore opportunities open to PhDs.

Take advantage of OCS resources to explore career options, develop professional skills and experiences and conduct a rewarding  job search beyond the academy.  Be sure to review our events calendar frequently for upcoming workshops, alumni panels and employer events and make an appointment with an advisor for personalized advice on your career development journey.
