Sites are reviewed on an annual basis for relevancy, ease of use, and utility for Yale students and graduates. If you have any comments about the sites, or would like to recommend a new site to include, please contact us.

Tip: Search Tips

  • Control/Command + Click to select or deselect multiple options
  • This is an "and" search, meaning that the more filters selected and keywords entered, the less results will be returned (e.g. a search for "Type: Networking" and "Industry: Engineering" will return only results tagged with both)
  • Try the Advanced Search to expose more career industries and search parameters
