There are more than 2000 Yale alumni and affiliates in the San Diego area. Many of them have offered to assist Yale students and alumni who are in San Diego or contemplating moving to the area with job searches and career changes. Those alumni who have offered to help are part of the Career Counseling Resource Network for San Diego, created by the authority of the Board of Governors of the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA).
Yale’s Career Counseling Resource Network is not a job placement service, but the alumni listed can assist students and alumni by providing insight into a particular field, information about the overall climate for the field in a particular geographical area, or the names of other contacts in the field. The database is organized by both occupation and industry. To learn more about how to use the Career Counseling Resource Network and contact these willing alumni, contact Bob Longstreth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AYA also maintains an online Yale Career Network, which can be accessed from a link from AYA’s home page. At present, the online Yale Career Network database is not as robust as the Career Counseling Resource Network’s database, particularly for contacts in the San Diego area, but interested students and alumni are urged to consult both resources.
