Panels, Conferences, & Other Events
There are many ways to learn about employers and find opportunities. Even if an event is not overtly about recruiting, it could still offer the chance to connect with individuals or information that could lead to a job or internship, now or sometime in the future. Below are just a few examples:
- Educational Career Panels: Our office organizes 250+ programs each year, many of which feature panelists doing exciting work at organizations that are of high interest to students. Each year, students find opportunities by networking with panelists from these events.
- Harvard University Professional Conferences: Often the most relevant Harvard events for FAS students are those hosted by the Harvard professional schools and the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA). For example, Harvard Business School student organizations host several conferences each year based on industry, geographic location, and/or identity, while HAA Shared Interest Groups put on events like the Harvard Alumni for Global Women’s Empowerment Expo.
- National Conferences: Many national organizations and professional associations host conferences and career events that serve both as educational experiences with panels and presentations and as recruiting events with many employer representatives. Some examples include the annual Grace Hopper Conference for women in tech and the Out for Undergrad conferences.
