Career Services

Welcome to the Career Services Office at Harvard Graduate School of Education

At the Career Services Office, we offer programs and tools that focus on career management rather than a one-time job link. Our staff members not only help with immediate search needs but encourage lifelong professional development.

HGSE graduates are very attractive to recruiters. Last year, over 4,000 organizations pursued students and alumni through our on campus interviews, career fairs and job postings. Each program of graduate study is unrivaled in course variety and level of instruction, and is valued equally--receiving consistently high ratings--among employers.

We encourage you to explore our services by visiting the section of our website that identifies your interest:

No matter your affiliation, we look forward to working with you!

-Valerie J. Sutton, Director of Career Services
