Get Involved with the CDO

One of the most rewarding — and visible — means of staying connected with the school is through the Career Development Office’s programs of career education. As part of the Career Development Process, the CDO invites alumni to come back to participate in career educational events such as the annual fall Career Immersion event. Alumni have also participated in the CDO-sponsored mock interview and on-campus informational interview programs, which are scheduled throughout the school year to accommodate the schedules of visiting alumni.

Mentor a Student through the SOMAA Mentor Program

Alumni mentors work with students, providing a friendly, supportive source of advice as students go through the job search process. Students use an online program to select mentors in fields that interest them. In recent years participation in the program has been very high, and both students and alumni report having positive experiences. See the SOMAA Mentor Program webpage for more information.

Other Ways to Give Back

There are numerous other ways Yale SOM Alumni can give back to the school, the community, current students, and other alumni.
