For those that find themselves at a new fork in the road, there are some clear tactics that have served Yale students and path-seekers more broadly over the last few years. This workshop is a summary of the most-oft-quoted advice from >100 1x1s with these ’seekers’. Peter’s former life as a leader in private and non-profit sectors (and his current role advising leaders across sectors) also brings a potential hirer’s perspective to this interactive workshop. The workshop also covers a whistle-stop tour of the amazing resources available to help students in their search while they are at Yale, and FES in particular.
