Graduate Student Placement

The English Department at Yale University has an unmatched record in placing graduate students in tenure-track jobs and research post-docs. The department has a well-funded and extensive set of colloquia and workshops designed to professionalize students in relation to their field(s). These include occasions for students to meet leading scholars and editors, as well as training in how to prepare articles for publication and papers for conference presentation. The faculty placement advisor works closely with every student applying for jobs on composing materials and getting ready for interviews and job talks.
