HES Students

The Office of Career Services (OCS) serves Harvard Extension School (HES) admitted undergraduate and graduate degree candidates and alumni. In addition, OCS welcomes HES premedical program participants in need of general career advice and support. Please note: OCS does not offer HES candidates or alumni fellowship or premedical services. HES candidates interested in premed advising should connect with HES Premedical Program Office (hcp@extension.harvard.edu).

OCS offers a wide range of services tailored to the needs of adult learners at all stages of their careers, including those seeking to make a career change or move up in their current field. To make the most of OCS career resources, we recommend that you set up a Crimson Careers account. Through Crimson Careers, you can search 24/7 for hundreds of jobs/internships and schedule phone or Zoom career advising appointments with Shoshana Mavor and Amanda Peters.
