Talk to an Adviser

Drop-in Advising

The Mignone Center for Career Success offers Harvard College undergraduates ten-minute virtual and in-person “ask me anything” drop-in sessions. This is the best way to get started with us or to have your resume or cover letter reviewed. Available every weekday 1-2pm virtual, 2-4pm in-person. Log into the queue starting at 1pm (password mcs1).

Thirty-Minute Scheduled Appointments (in person, phone, or Zoom)

Discuss career decisions, summer planning, making connections, interviewing, applying to graduate school, or other questions. Log in to Crimson Careers and click on “advising appointment” on the left to view advisor availability and reserve a time. (First-year students: Attending a drop-in advising session grants you access to schedule a subsequent 30-minute advising appointment.)
