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.
