SOMPost Newsletter – August 2023

What We’re Excited About

We are excited to welcome over 500 new students to Yale SOM!

We encourage you to welcome new and returning students this academic year:

Email students a welcome message from your organization. Access resume books in 12twenty, filter by desired criteria, and download as .csv to create a distribution list. Email a warm introduction highlighting your organization’s desire to connect with these students. The resume book for students graduating this academic year is available now; the resume book for first-year MBAs will be available on September 11.

Sponsor a club today – clubs kickoff in two weeks! Sponsoring a club introduces your organization to Yale SOM students and builds your recruiting brand. Read details here for the $500 and $1500 sponsorship levels available. In two weeks, new students explore all club options and clubs hold intro meetings for prospective members – act now to be involved from the start!
