"Part of what keeps me heavily involved with recruiting is thinking about how alumni helped me and, in some sense, trying to continue that tradition."

"I feel a responsibility to help students, especially other joint-degree students, find great jobs that incorporate business and environment."
Last year over 700 SOM alumni chose to volunteer their time, talents, and expertise on behalf of Yale SOM. They did so in many ways, from facilitating case writing to participating on panels at student conferences to attending regional events hosted by local chapters.
Alumni have taken time to talk with students one-on-one about career paths while also often doing recruiting at their individual firms. SOM alumni participation in recruitment events has led directly to placement for SOM students in summer associate and full-time positions.
Visit the SOM Alumni Portal to view a list of alumni who volunteered their assistance this past year.
