The Four I’s of Recruiting at Yale SOM

Based on feedback from students, recruiters and our career service experience, there are Four I’s to a successful recruiting strategy: Inclusive, Informative, Interactive and Interpersonal.

  1. Visit this guide for tips on creating an inclusive strategy.
  2. Schedule engagements focused on interactive and interpersonal.
  3. Limit – or eliminate – presentations from recruiting events. Instead, share informative reference materials in advance of engagements. 

Range of Yale SOM degree programs

Students pursuing a variety of degrees at Yale SOM may be ideal candidates for a variety of your organization’s recruiting needs. We are happy to work with you or your colleagues who may manage recruiting processes for different degree populations, seniority, functions, etc. Note that most recruiting events (excluding coffee chats) are open to all Yale SOM students.
