Mark Zuckerberg will visit Harvard on Monday to recruit students for jobs and internships at Facebook. (Interested students should contact the Harvard Office of Career Services.)
Zuckerberg, along with Facebook Vice President of Engineering Mike Schroepfer, will meet with more than 200 computer science students at Farkas Hall (the New College Theater) for a discussion moderated by computer science lecturer David J. Malan.
It is Zuckerberg’s first official visit to Harvard since leaving in 2004 to launch Facebook, the world’s leading social media network.
While on campus, Zuckerberg will also meet with Harvard officials.
There will be an informal press availability at 4:30 p.m. Interested media should contact Harvard Public Affairs & Communications for credentials.
Facebook is one of many student- or faculty-based engineering and technology companies that got their start at Harvard.
