Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
If you are interested in finding jobs or internships, then stop by the Office of Career Services. At OCS, you can meet with one of the many career counseling experts who will help you search for the perfect job match, help edit your résumés, and even review your interview techniques through video-taped mock interviews. Placing the Harvard name on your résumé certainly gives you an advantage for applying to jobs or internships; however, it's not an automatic acceptance. Harvard is more like a foot in the door, while your success within the University will ultimately determine whether you find the job that you want.
