Roadtrip Nation (RTN) empowers individuals to identify their interests and discover career pathways aligned with their unique ambitions and skills. RTN does this through a long-running documentary series on public television, a database of thousands of real-world professionals’ stories, a project-based curriculum, and a New York Times best-selling book.

Visit Yale's Roadtrip Nation webpage to access 5,000+ informational interview videos from professionals of every kind.  These videos cover questions that no one is asking—honest questions about their struggles, successes, and how they figured out the age-old dilemma, “What should I do with my life?”.  Yale's subscription to Roadtrip Nation gives Yale College students, GSAS students, and Postdocs access to:

  • An interactive, career-discovery tool, The Roadmap.
  • The Interview Archive containing over 5,000 video interviews from individuals sharing their career stories from an array of industries and job functions.
