What We're Excited About

Save the date!

In early May, we kick off campus recruiting planning for next year – including on-campus efforts! Stay tuned to your inbox to learn more about new opportunities to connect with Yale SOM students from across all degree programs. 


CPT, Social Security Numbers, Background Checks & Start Dates 

Federal regulations dictate that the earliest date Yale University can authorize CPT for international students is their official start date. Students can apply for Social Security up to 30 days prior to the start of their CPT. 

Regardless of employer requests, Yale cannot authorize early CPT before employment begins for any reason including applying earlier for SSN.

Please keep these dates and federal regulations in mind if your organization requires students to submit Social Security numbers prior to starting work and inform hiring managers accordingly.

Hiring? Don't Miss This!

On May 19th we will co-host a virtual Global Graduate Business School Career Fair. Students from 21 business schools on three continents will participate, looking for just-in-time hiring opportunities. Registration is free and open!  

Password: CareerFair2022

As the weather warms up in New Haven, so does just-in-time hiring activity!
