A Yale degree prepares you for many career paths across functional areas, industries and sectors. Your major or discipline at Yale will not limit you to a specific career path, and in fact many students consider multiple interest areas during their time at Yale. Explore the OCS Communities to follow relevant news and blogs, career spotlights, and employment opportunities structured to help you decide which career path is right for you. You can also sign up to receive newsletters and regular updates to stay informed about as many communities as you choose.
To receive regular updates from the Identity/Affinity, Career and Applying to Graduate/Professional School Communities, sign up for a customized newsletter through Yale Career Link. Once logged in to Yale Career Link, choose My Account, Academic Tab, and select your communities of interest and a customized newsletter will be sent to you weekly. You can opt-out at any time directly in the newsletter or change your preferences through the Yale Career Link.
Each of our seven Affinity/Identity Communities was created with the advice and guidance of our experts within the Yale community and enables students to pursue their career search within a community of peers. Students may identify with more than one affinity/identity community and are therefore encouraged to explore multiple communities.

- International Students
- First Generation and/or Low Income Students
- LGBTQ Students
- Students of Color
- Students with Disabilities
