Student Veterans

Yale’s Office of Career Strategy is dedicated to supporting Student Veterans as they pursue career opportunities that align with their professional goals. With specialized resources and advice, OCS advisors can guide Student Veterans through the process of securing positions, including the career exploration process, material reviews, and assisting in searching and applying for internships, jobs, and graduate school.

Some employers may offer diversity recruitment programs aimed to address historical gaps in the workforce, and students are encouraged to research those programs to learn more.

Making Connections

The Yale Veterans Network is the key Yale campus resource for Student Veterans. It shares its vision and mission which are to make Yale University the employer of choice for veterans, reservists, and members of the National Guard, and to create a Yale community of veterans, veteran leaders and allies who support and encourage their recruitment, career development, growth and retention.

“True to Her Traditions” is the motto of the Yale Veterans Association (YVA). Established as a shared interest group with the support of the Association of Yale Alumni, YVA is a non-partisan, non-political organization comprised of members of the Yale community who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States or its allies and their supporters.

The Yale School of Management Veterans Club is dedicated to empowering current United States Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and international military members. The Yale SOM Veterans Club has a rich history of current members and alumni contributing meaningfully within the public, private, nonprofit, and government sectors.
