WELCOME YALE ALUMNI!

Yale Online Alumni Community (Online Services)

Welcome!  The AYA is eager to facilitate communication among Yale graduates. The internet offers an exciting medium for alumni to stay in touch with their alma mater and each other. Most of our efforts on alumni electronic communications have focused on the areas described below.

2016 Graduates:
 

Access for new graduates is not available at this time. We will be contacting you via email later this summer, and will provide you with further information and instructions for registering. For descriptions of the services offered, please see yalealumni.yale.edu. If you have specific questions in the meantime, other than how to register, please let us know at aya@yale.edu.

We hope to provide a lifetime of valuable ways to stay connected to Yale and to your fellow alumni!

Online Alumni Directory  - We have a fresh new look!

The next time you log into the online directory you'll notice we have a new look.  The Online Alumni Directory, along with a new look, has additional features, including:

  • Search for Yale friends, classmates or colleagues in the alumni directory.
  • Expand your profile to include your personal and professional affiliations at any time.
  • Join in a discussion with other alumni on a community message board.
  • Add feeds from your LinkedIn profile.

The entire online community is password-restricted to registered users only.  You can determine precisely what, if any, of your personal and professional contact information will be available for other alumni to see.  Search the online directory for fellow alumni.  As a registered member, the directory is a great resource for personal and professional networking and an easy way to keep up-to-date with fellow alumni.

How do you get started?  Just log in to your profile account and take a look at what we've done!

Yale Career Network

The Yale Career Network is a database of alumni who are interested in networking with fellow alumni and current students. As a member of the   Yale alumni community this network will allow you to search and connect with fellow Yale alumni to discuss career objectives and explore career interests. As an alumnus/a, you can also serve as a career resource to others by sharing your experience, skills, and expertise. Before using the Yale Career Network, please visit our resources for tips on effective career networking.

Please note the Yale Career Network is for students and alumni career networking purposes only and may not be used for business or fundraising solicitations. If you have questions about the Yale Career Network email them to career.network@yale.edu. 

The Yale Career Network is powered by Symplicity, which is co-sponsored by the Association of Yale Alumni and the Office of Career Strategy. For further information:  http://ocs.yale.edu/content/new-yale-career-network
