Career Development

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:

Student Activities

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.

Job Postings and Research Opportunities

We strongly encourage employers to post jobs on Crimson Careers.  So, please check that site regularly; you might even want to set up an automated search in CC.  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.  These are listed at the links below.  Each week, I'll add to the lists, and I try not to duplicate listings from earlier weeks.  I usually don't know when the postings expire. Most of these are taken from Crimson Careers, but there are usually some postings that don't quite fit into CC.

I often see student groups posting job opportunities on their club message boards.  If an alumnus or company sent you these, feel free to introduce them to me.
