Yale Undegraduate Career Services



Each year UCS hosts over one hundred programs and workshops throughout the year. Through these programs students learn about careers and graduate programs, interact with professionals, and build basic career skills. UCS offers a variety of workshops and career panels to support students with their career development. These programs focus on equipping students with job/internship search strategies and resources; creating and organizing application materials for graduate school, internships and jobs, and preparing students for the workforce.

In addition, UCS works with employers to coordinate information sessions to enable students to learn more about the nature of the work and potential career opportunities. The information sessions usually take place at the beginning of each semester and are held across campus. Students who choose to attend have the opportunity to learn about the organization as well as network with representatives.

Event dates and times are available on our Events Calendar.
