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 each industry, its outlook, the types of people who do well and are happy, and how you succeed in the profession. The 27 panels conducted thus far have been live and via streaming video and are recorded for later viewing. Recently, we started a new series of "Yale Career Fireside Chats" focused on career-related issues instead of specific professions. 4 have been held thus far.

The Professions Covered

We have covered 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. Fireside Chats have covered "Managing Major Career Changes", "The Art of Networking", "Serving on Boards" and "Cybersecurity". Click below to view video recordings of the 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.
