Welcome to Career Services!
Dear current student,
Welcome! It is my hope that you will be an active participant in the offerings of the career services office during your time at YDS.
In 2003, Yale Divinity School became one of only a handful of theological schools offering professional career services to its students. Since that time, we have seen significant improvements in the numbers of our graduates going on to full time work in engaging and interesting fields. We are a small office (just one staff member) but manage to provide a nice variety of services and programs. In addition to programs offered at Divinity Career Services, we collaborate with other graduate offices on the university’s campus for other programs and events. To get information about the types of services we provide, check out the Services and Resources Links on the left. To peek into the career paths of YDS alumni/ae, check out our virtual career fair. Last, the resources for specific career goals section will provide you with information and resources unique to the paths you may be pursuing.
Students are encouraged to utilize the resources of the career office early and often throughout their educational programs at the Divinity School, particularly if your vocational direction is unclear, or if you are traveling a less-frequently traveled path. I have experience and training (MA in counseling plus the MDiv) and enjoy working with students to help discern or plan for a future. For an individual appointment, contact Susan Olson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-432-9485.
Limited services are available to alumni/ae, often on a fee per service basis. Unfortunately it is not possible for services to be offered to student spouses and partners.
