Faculty & Staff

The Mignone Center for Career Success helps Harvard students identify their strengths and how they can best use them in summer and post-graduation opportunities. We offer advising and a wide array of programming and resources aimed at discovering interests and skills, exploring career pathways, and preparing for internships, jobs, and graduate school. We serve students and recent alumni of Harvard College, the Harvard Kenneth C. Griffin Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (Harvard Griffin GSAS), the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and Harvard Extension School (HES) degree programs.

We partner with faculty and staff in many ways and are always happy to discuss ways to provide support to our students and recent alumni.
