Yale Undegraduate Career Services

Talk to a Career Adviser


Wherever you are in the job search process—from not knowing where to start to finalizing the details of your job offer—meeting one-on-one with a UCS Adviser or Peer Adviser will afford you clarity and control over your career development. Advisers are available to discuss your career-related interests and help you create a roadmap for your job search or graduate school plans. The goal of UCS is to teach you the strategies to manage your own career exploration and search processes throughout your career.

Two ways to talk to a UCS Adviser:


UCS provides daily walk-in advising services with UCS Advisers and Peer Advisers to allow students to stop by UCS for quick questions. Walk-in advising sessions are 15 minutes and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Advisers can address during walk-in sessions:

  • Resume review
  • Cover letter review
  • Overview of UCS resources
  • Interview or employer event preparation
  • Review of Yale UCS Symplicity – online system used for job postings, on-campus recruiting, events, and resources
  • The first steps of an internship or job search

Upon arrival at the UCS office, sign in at the front desk. After meeting with an adviser, students are welcome to further their conversations by scheduling an advising appointment.
