Ways that Faculty & Staff can Collaborate with the Mignone Center for Career Success


Chairs in a classroom

We value the relationship we have with faculty and staff, including tutors and proctors. We recognize that the professional and career development process for students is happening in all aspects of their college experience, and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate and engage. In addition to referring students to our office and suggesting employers and organizations for us to connect with, here are some ways we welcome your partnership: 

Educational Programming: We develop programs to help students explore different career pathways, connect with alumni, and position themselves for a successful job or internship search. Please encourage students to attend our events and email ocsrecep@fas.harvard.edu if you have an idea for a program that is not currently being offered. 

Understand our Offerings: The newly redesigned Mignone Center for Career Success website provides information for students in a wide variety of areas and topics. You may appreciate knowing about our Discover Career Pathways pages, providing curated content on diverse industries. And our Still Exploring page gives students who are in the career exploration stage valuable tools and tangible next steps. 

Share Resources: In addition to our advising and programming, we have many resources we’ve created or subscribe to for students to use. We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the career support available to students. 

The staff within the houses are valuable partners in Harvard’s “career ecosystem,” and we are excited to share tools and resources with proctors and tutors as we work to provide equitable career support to students across all Harvard houses.

The GSAS team at the Mignone Center for Career Success works with current GSAS master’s and PhD students, as well as GSAS alums (<5 years post-graduation), around all aspects of career development and the job/internship search within and beyond academia.

We encourage faculty and staff to promote open conversations between faculty/staff and students around the value of the PhD in a variety of career areas, especially given the very tight academic job market. Check out “What You Can Be with a Harvard PhD” (and share this with your students as a signal of your support for their career well-being, regardless of the path they choose).

GSAS advisors, Laura Stark and Caroline Rende, welcome the opportunity to visit your department or program to talk about how we can help your students plan for their next career steps. We are happy to give an overview of our services and discuss any career/job search questions your students may have. We find the most well-attended programs are part of a pre-existing departmental seminar series (e.g. a Grad School 101-type series). We are also happy to join a stand-alone meeting with your students from your department or several related departments. Please email Laura Stark to schedule a visit.

We also invite you to encourage your students to schedule an advising appointment through Crimson Careers. Laura Stark primarily advises on academic careers, Caroline Rende primarily advises on non-academic careers, and both advisors work with Harvard College and GSAS master’s students applying for PhD programs. Please note: Harvard College students and alums must request access to Laura and Caroline’s advising calendars by emailing ocsrecep@fas.harvard.edu.



The Premedical and Health Careers Advising team at the Mignone Center for Career Success provides support for undergraduates and alumni planning to apply to a variety of professional programs in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and allied health professions. We collaborate with faculty and staff in several ways, but primarily work with fellow staff through programmatic efforts to promote opportunities across the college, and with faculty to clarify and support academic decisions around coursework and professional program requirements. Faculty and staff are welcome to share any upcoming events, opportunities, or courses with us at premed@fas.harvard.edu so that we may include them in our monthly pre-health newsletter.

The Harvard Extension School (HES) team at the Mignone Center for Career Sucess advises students admitted to HES Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs, as well as degree alums. Our students are often working professionals, with an average of 10+ years of work experience. We are always happy to engage with faculty and staff. This can include:

Referring students for advising: Amanda Peters and Shoshana Mavor meet with current degree students in half hour appointments to provide career advising, whether on elements of the job search, career path decision making, or moving roles within their current organization. Please encourage HES degree students and alumni to schedule appointments through Crimson Careers, and to explore the Harvard Extension School page on our website.

Sharing jobs and employer connections: We know that many members of faculty and staff are regularly in touch with potential employers, may have roles open up within their own department, or want to share their career-related knowledge with students. We welcome connections to your department or employers you may interact with who are interested in promoting open positions or relevant career/networking events to our experienced student and alumni population. Please connect with Shoshana Mavor with any relevant information or questions.

Promoting our events and services to current HES students and degree alumni: Details on all resources and services, including HES Career and Academic Resource Center (CARC) programming, are available on the HES Career Services page.
