What Is "Careers, Life, and Yale"?
Careers, Life, and Yale is all about connections – connecting Yale alumni to each other and with current students to network, for mentoring, and to develop the career and life skills that are key to thriving in today’s modern world.
Careers, Life, and Yale endeavors to impart wisdom and create these connections in three ways:
- Alumni-led, student-attended events (mostly on campus)
- Alumni-led, alumni-attended events (at various locations)
These connections accomplish several goals:
- Thoughtful career/life exploration and reflection
- Exposure to diverse, traditional, and non-traditional career and life paths
- A jump-start to the networking process
- Acquisition of practical life skills
- An added sense of "One Yale"
- Activation of Yale's alumni network
- A complement to on-campus career, personal, and wellness resources
"For alumni, this is an opportunity to reconnect with campus and guide the next generation in developing robust and meaningful life paths. For students, it will lead to a better understanding of themselves, their intended careers, and their plans to lead productive and fulfilling lives. And for Yale, it will be a cornerstone of a university that is ever more unified and more excellent."
Careers, Life, and Yale Events
Led by alumni volunteers with support from many organizations around campus, Careers, Life, and Yale events offer insights into unusual and established career paths. These events go deeper than career wisdom – alumni also share insights about leadership, teamwork, life transitions, financial literacy, and greater self-awareness.
Join fellow Yalies in an afternoon workshop led by a Yale School of Management executive coach and leadership professional Rob Greenly ’83 MBA. Come with an open mind – and leave with a vision and action plan to transform your life or career.
