Welcome to the Mignone Center for Career Success (MCS) – for Harvard Extension School degree students and alumni

Welcome to MCS!

This curated Harvard Extension School page has been designed to help HES admitted degree students and alumni navigate the many resources and services provided by the Mignone Center for Career Success (MCS), as well as provide additional Harvard and external resources that can move your career forward. Newly admitted degree students gain access to Crimson Careers and other Harvard Key-protected sites starting a few weeks after admittance. Look out for an email from the Mignone Center for Career Success on how to login!

Navigating the site

To get started, we recommend watching the HES: Introduction to Career Services recording and reading Where to begin when exploring your next steps. Admitted degree students and alumni can then schedule career advising appointments via Crimson Careers, select Featured Resources to access HES-tailored handouts or network with Harvard alumni via Firsthand, explore Organizations related to specific interest areas, attend MCS and employer Events, read advice from HES alumni, and much more. Of course, keep attending HES Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) webinars, as well! You will find recordings of past CARC Career webinars in the Webinar Library.

We look forward to working with you!
