Throughout the year, the Office of Career Strategy works with employers to host industry events and individual company sessions where students can meet employer representatives and learn about their organizations.

Industry Events

In lieu of one large career fair, the Office of Career Strategy hosts multiple industry-specific networking and recruiting events. These Industry Events offer students a great opportunity to connect with a variety of employers and learn about any available internship or full-time opportunities. Most of these events occur in the fall semester. Registration information for future events will be posted in the Events tab of the Yale Career Link under “workshops." In 2017-18, OCS hosted the following networking events: Advertising, Management & Marketing; Healthcare Consulting; Boutique Consulting; Boutique Finance; Education; Government; Science, Technology, Engineering & Math; Law & Legal Services; Nonprofit; Start-Up; Common Good Careers; and Creative Careers.

Employer Information Sessions

Individual employers may also host events for students throughout the year on-campus or remotely. These events may include company presentations, coffee chats, office hours, mock interviews, webinars, or tech talks. Students can view a list of any upcoming individual employer events by going to the Events tab in the Yale Career Link, and then selecting “information sessions.” 

Dress Code for Employer Events

The Yale Office of Career Strategy implements a business casual dress code for industry networking events, employer information sessions, tech talks, and other on-campus employer recruiting events. Please note that this business casual dress code does not apply to on-campus interviews; please review the Interview Basics webpage for more information.

Business casual attire may include pants, shirts, skirts, and dresses that, while not formal, are appropriate for a professional environment. Clothing should be pressed, and should be neither too loose nor too tight. Torn or frayed clothing is unacceptable, as is anything that has words or pictures that may be offensive. Examples of acceptable business casual attire include a sweater or blouse with khaki pants, a skirt, or corduroy pants.
