Informational Interviews at Harvard

Local Harvard HR offices are offering informational interviews called “Career Conversations” every third Thursday from January through June, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. You must have a Harvard ID to participate. As this is a Harvard HR program, please visit Harvie to ensure you are viewing the most up-to-date version of this information: http://hr.harvard.edu/managing-your-career

What can you learn by attending a Career Conversation meeting? These sessions give you the opportunity to meet one-on-one with local HR officers so you can learn more about Harvard’s schools and departments, including key initiatives and work environments, and explore your career interests, expand your professional network and strengthen future applications. You can learn more in this FAQ.

You must sign up in advance for these one-on-one discussions by submitting a brief questionnaire to the local HR office that you wish to meet with directly. You will receive a confirmed time for a 15-30 minute meeting. For the list of participating schools and units and to submit a meeting request click here. You may attend one or all of these sessions by visiting different schools or central departments. (Please schedule only one meeting per month.)

You must prepare in advance for these sessions – please see this Preparation Checklist for details and review these Quick Resume Tips so that you have an up-to-date, effective resume to bring to the meeting.

Dates for the final two sessions of the year:
