How long have you been at HBS?
I have been working at HBS for almost 4 years, but I’ve been
a Recruiting Relations Manager for a year and a half. Before joining Career & Professional Development (CPD), I
worked for the HBS Social Enterprise Initiative. In that role I provided
support for MBA student programming and coordinated the office’s event planning.
It’s really interesting to have experienced two different departments around
campus and I’m glad to have had the opportunity.
What is the best part about working with employers?
I love working with recruiters and especially enjoy helping
smaller organizations increase their brand awareness on campus. All companies
have their own timelines for recruiting and their own unique goals. As a
Recruiting Relations Manager, I am here to offer guidance throughout the whole
process and to help recruiters with their overall recruiting strategy.
We know you managed Dedicated Interview Period – tell us about that experience.
Managing Dedicated Interview Period was a busy, but fun
experience! With the support of others on the CPD team, I managed the logistics for over 100 organizations
interviewing on campus in search of summer interns. I always enjoy meeting
recruiters face-to-face and the Dedicated Interview Period is a great chance to
do this. It’s also rewarding to know that this work helped so many students get
their dream summer internships.
Tell us a fun fact.
You may have already emailed or spoken with me as Harley
Gillen, but I changed my last name recently to Munsell. I got married in
October and enjoyed the entire wedding process immensely! I’m slowly getting
used to the new last name and hope that all of my recruiting partners will, too!
