Prospective Students & Guests

The Yale Office of Career Strategy offers career advising, professional school advising, employment and internship opportunities, and career development resources. Our office works with students and alums of Yale College, Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and postdoctoral scholars to clarify career aspirations, identify employment and educational opportunities, and offer support at every stage of career development.

Yale students pursue many exciting and diverse careers after graduation. We invite you to visit our Yale College Outcomes: First Destination and Yale College Outcomes: Four Year Out to learn more about the choices of Yale students. Our team of highly experienced career advisors look forward to working with you to craft your summer and post graduate job search.

Considering Time Off or a Gap Year Before Starting Yale?

Some admitted students may consider taking a year off or ‘gap year’ before starting college. The Office of Career Strategy advises current Yale students, but our website is full of helpful information and is open to the public. Students considering a gap year are encouraged to check out the following resources to assist in your search:

Due to COVID-19, students may choose to find opportunities in their hometown. It may take some time and creativity depending on your town or city, but here are some tips to start:

  • Be flexible and consider a number of ways to create a professional opportunity: volunteering, part-time jobs, short-term positions, remote internships and micro-internships, and project based work.
  • Make a list of all the businesses/organizations in your hometown. What functions/projects do they have that may need support? Do they have any opportunities for a part-time student to create something they need?
  • Consider project work that could help small businesses, such as website building/management, writing press releases, or designing logos and other organizational art work.
  • With many K-12 schools planning to resume in Fall 2020, consider on-line tutoring in your strongest subject areas.
  • Consider all your hometown connections who may be able to assist you: family, friends, past teachers/coaches, past supervisors, and high school alumni in your area.
  • If you are looking for part-time work, you may need to call businesses directly or email your resume to them. This may include remote micro-internships, part-time or freelance work.
