Fall recruiting season is fully upon us here at Yale SOM. Students are sharing their excitement about the full-time offers they are receiving. Those seeking summer internships are fully engaged in getting to know various organizations and opportunities. Employers enthusiastically are holding their own recruiting events and participating in the various career networking events we host. Below I share a recap of these events and an overview of recruiting opportunities to come. As always, reach out to your Employer Partnerships Manager or with any questions or comments.


Meet the new Yale SOM students

Class profiles of the following degrees were released recently, highlighting the academic strength, diverse pre-SOM experiences, and global nature of the programs.

Eight networking events in just two weeks! 

EngageSOM-Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: such a hit, we’re ready for another this month!

Nine employers joined us September 24 for our inaugural EngageSOM-Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. During the event, employers showcased why they value DEI and their efforts to advance these values within their organization. Students had a chance to learn from a variety of voices and the opportunity to connect directly with employers to learn more. The eagerly anticipated second EngageSOM-DEI will be held during Affinity Week at Yale SOM, on Friday, October 29. Check out event details in 12Twenty and register today – the first event closed to employers with a waitlist, so act fast!
