SEAS Office of Experiential and Career Development
Students in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences now have a career office within SEAS itself. Whether you are early in your undergraduate studies or are rushing toward your PhD defense, I may be able to help you. I have no specified office hours, but the best way to see me is to sign up for a 20-minute session using this Calendly link. You are also welcome to stop by if my office in Pierce if the light is on. (See information on the right-hand side of this page.) I suggest that you send me a resume, the url to your LinkedIn profile, and, if you have one, a link to a project portfolio.
I also encourage students to make use of the opportunities, advising, and resources available through the university Office of Career Services (OCS) including summer funding, research opportunities, and study abroad. See their contact information on right-hand side of this page. I try to list their events in my newsletters, but I also encourage you to check their calendars regularly.
If you are from industry and wish to recruit our students, please see our Industry page.
If you are a student, check out several links below:
Resources for Resumes, LinkedIn, Portfolios
If you are interested in student clubs that have strong participation from SEAS students, see the Student Organizations page
If you are interested in participating in student competitions (e.g., robotics, computing, etc.), see the Student Competitions page. Many of these are tackled by teams organized through the Student Organizations.
Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Harvard Groups
These opportunities - at least initially - do not typically include financial support during the school year. You may be able to get course credit - check with the professor and your advisor. The web pages of the professors in SEAS are organized by broad topics under each major field on the Research Interests page.
We strongly encourage employers to post jobs on Crimson Careers. So, please check that site regularly. I post post-graduate jobs, internships, and (a small number) of part-time term-time jobs in the weekly undergraduate and graduate student / postdoc newsletters. Most of these are taken from Crimson Careers, but there are usually some postings that don't quite fit into CC. These are listed in the links below.
