Students are encouraged to upload their resumes to CMS prior to appointments with CDO counselors. Students also upload their resumes to participate in our interview programs.
Interview Program Participation
Students utilize CMS to bid on participating employers and view their interview schedules. More information about our interview programs can be found under Programs.
Some of the most popular materials in CDO are the comments collected from students about their summer employment in the online summer employment evaluations. The evaluations cover summer employment experiences from the past seven years. In addition, those who are pursuing judicial clerkships regularly take advantage of the information from former YLS clerks in the confidential comment surveys. Clerkship applicants can access clerkship comment surveys for the past seven years as well.
Employers specifically looking for Yale students utilize CMS to post job opportunities. The job announcements are searchable by job type, duration (summer or permanent, for example), practice area, and geographic location. Students can also set up email alerts to notify them of specific posting types.
More than 1,600 alumni members have volunteered to provide career-related advice to students and alumni. We strongly encourage you to use Career Connections with unusual care: contact members for career-related advice only and not for solicitation, political or commercial purpose; be conservative in the number of members you contact; and finally, contact members using the method of contact that they request. CDO has prepared the following guidelines for Student Organizations utilizing Career Connections.
