Harvard Extension School

The Mignone Center for Career Success serves Harvard Extension School (HES) admitted undergraduate and graduate degree candidates and alumni. In addition, we welcome HES Premedical Program participants in need of general career advice and support. Please note: we do not offer fellowship or premedical services to HES degree students or alumni. HES degree students interested in premed advising should connect with the HES Premedical Program Office after speaking with their academic advisor.

All currently enrolled Harvard Extension School students can view information about the Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) and more on the Extension School Career Services page.

We offer 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 to move within their current company or field. To make the most of our career resources, we recommend that you set up a Crimson Careers account. Through Crimson Careers, you can search 24/7 for hundreds of jobs and internships, schedule career advising appointments, and identify employer contacts.
