  • Second year MBA students at Yale SOM approach full-time recruiting from a variety of experiences and perspectives. Some students may receive and accept offers from their summer internships, while others choose to pursue full-time recruiting in the spring or summer closer to their desired start date (just in time hiring). Review the General FT Recruiting Timelines below to get a better sense of when recruiting typically happens in your industries of interest.

    Some second year MBAs pursue industries and roles that exactly align with their summer internships, while other use their summer to build skills needed for pursuing a completely different path from their previous experiences.

  • The first year of your MBA experience, particularly Fall Semester, is one of the busiest times in b school. It’s important to take time to reflect on who you are and what you are seeking to achieve early in the process, so that you can keep focus on your career goals amid other pressures.

    Check out the General Internship Recruiting Timelines below to get a sense of when recruiting happens in your industries of interest (keep in mind that recruiting activities typically begin at least 3-4 months before offers go out) and make an appointment with a CDO Career Coach or attend CDO Programming to get started and stay on track.
