HBS Career & Professional Development (CPD) works to provide varied resources tailored to each individual's need. With our help, you'll not only have the tools you need for both your internship and full-time search, but also an array of resources geared toward your professional development post-HBS.

A Dedicated Team

CPD is committed to help both students and alumni realize their unique career visions. With more than 30 career education professionals on the team, we work together to not only guide students and alumni through their career journey, but also provide valuable programming for both students and alumni and create valuable employer relationships for the HBS network. 

Experienced Coaches

In addition to our team, students and alumni can choose from more than 50 career coaches who are trained to work with them throughout their career trajectories. Coaches are experienced business professionals who can help you craft resumes, cover letters, create and execute a search strategy, prepare for interviews and negotiations and improving your networking.

Company Connections

CPD hosts more than 290 companies on campus each year for interviews, presentations and networking events, in addition to the more than 6,000 companies that post jobs with us. Both students and alumni have access to our exclusive job posting database, where you can search by industry, location, function and experience. You can also make company connections through the various student-led Clubs on campus, which network with various organizations.

On-Demand Career Education

Our programs and resources aren't just available to you during your time at HBS. From the moment you arrive on campus to wherever you go after graduation, you'll have access to thousands of job postings, videos and career education resources tailored to your individual needs.

Student Fellowships

HBS supports diverse career paths through internship funding, loan assistance and alumni fellowships. In 2017, 259 students completed internships at HBS through our Summer Fellows Program. Each year, HBS graduates are offered high-impact opportunities in both the public and nonprofit sector as Leadership Fellows.

Fostering Entrepreneurship

Explore the world of entrepreneurship with unique programming and opportunities, including the Rock Summer Fellows program and the HBS New Venture Competition. You'll have access to world-class centers for entrepreneurship at both the Rock Center and the Harvard Innovation Lab.

The Alumni Network

You won't just have your peers in your network. At HBS, you'll be able to connect with more than 80,000 HBS alumni throughout your career. Whether digitally or in-person through one of the various Alumni Clubs based around the world, you'll be able to connect with your fellow HBS alumni.
