Harvard College Advising

The Office of Career Services welcomes students from all Harvard College concentrations, and offers a wide range of services and resources tailored specifically to internships, entry-level jobs, and summer opportunities for Harvard College students and recent alumni. Alumni within five years of graduation have full access to all services, with the exception of some online subscription resources.

When applying to graduate programs, Harvard College students often receive help from their House Tutors and academic departments. However, OCS offers additional resources and guidance.
