The Center for International and Professional Experiences (CIPE) is set up for the purposes of helping the students navigate life outside of Yale-NUS. At the start of the year, you are assigned a CIPE advisor who helps you out with all kinds of things. At the start, my CIPE advisor gave me some good advice on how to balance extracurriculars with my other academic and social priorities. You can also get help on finding the right part-time work for you, either on or off campus.

If there are opportunities you’d like to take advantage of when classes are out, such as spring LABs or summer language programs, CIPE can help you with that as well! They provide students with support for internships and organize semester abroad experiences. Plus, you can apply for CIPE support if you’d like to do a summer course, internship, or just conduct your own research. One of the big things that you can do during the summer is Yale Summer Session, where you take courses at Yale University in Newhaven, or a Yale summer course abroad.

Although you are assigned a CIPE advisor, if you have a specific question, there’s nothing stopping you from personally contacting the more relevant CIPE staff member.

CIPE staff are the best people to go to for cover letters, resumes, and other things to do with career services. They often host workshops and talks on cover letter writing and similar skills, as well as training for interviews, rapid resume reviews, and informational sessions about study abroad. CIPE organizes networking opportunities for YNC students and provides information about what liberal arts graduates can do after college. You can get an idea of what kinds of career services events CIPE holds on their website here: https://cipe.yale-nus.edu.sg/career-services/student/career-events/.

Yale-NUS is still nascent and our first graduating class hasn’t left school yet, which means that there is still a lot for the school to learn about career services and post-college employment. In fact, the best example of what a career as a YNC graduate looks like will likely be demonstrated by the first few classes of students that graduate the college. This also means that CIPE stands to develop a lot as a facilitator of student career services in the coming years.
