Yale Career Panels: A Candid View of Professions
Yale Career Panels: A Candid View of Professions

Purpose of the Career Panels

The Yale Career Panels were created to give students and alumni a candid view of a variety of professions where there are myths and misconceptions about the industry, its outlook, the types of people do well and are happy, and how you succeed in the profession. The 25 panels conducted thus far have been live and via streaming video and are recorded for later viewing. Last year we started a new series of "Yale Career Fireside Chats" that focused on career-related issues instead of specific professions. Two were held.

The Professions Covered

The professions we have covered include law, consulting, investing, medical, investment banking, drama and film, architecture, entrepreneurism, education, government service, internet and data services, biomedical, non-profit organizations, finance and investing, real estate, R&D, and a comparison of investing and investment banking. The Yale Career Fireside Chats have covered, "Managing Major Career Changes" and "Serving on Boards". Click below if you want to view any of the 24 recorded career panels and fireside chats.

These career panels have been a joint effort of a group of Yale alumni volunteers, the Yale Office of Career Strategies, the Association of Yale Alumni, the Association of Asian American Yale Alumni, STAY, and a host of other Yale organizations.
