CDO is open to F&ES master's and doctoral students and alumni. Students' spouses and significant others may seek assistance in local job searches. Other Yale students interested in environmental careers must seek a referral from their “home” career office.

Let Us Help You Design Your Career Strategy

The Career Development Office (CDO) supports F&ES students in developing careers as environmental leaders. Our expectation is to meet with all students during the fall semester to develop individual career action plans.
