Harvard College and GSAS Alumni
beyond Five Years of Graduation

The Office of Career Services (OCS) is an entry level career office primarily focused on serving graduating students. The office is not specialized in mid-career employment or transitions and is unable to advise alumni needing these services. After five years, alumni are entitled to one phone call each year to review their resume and discuss ideas for next steps. Alumni who attended graduate or professional school after Harvard College may wish to contact their graduate or professional school’s career office for help in their field or with transitions out of that field. Alumni needing a higher level of career support such as testing, assessment, coaching, or multi-session advising should seek a local career adviser through the directory of advisers recommended by the National Career Development Association. To request an alumni phone consultation, please complete the intake form.

Harvard Extension School Alumni

The Office of Career Services (OCS) offers career and graduate school resources, events and workshops, and individual career counseling to Harvard Extension School (HES) alumni. For details and additional information, visit the HES advising page.
