Welcome to the 1990 Career Forum. I hope you find the information gathered here both helpful and informational as you begin you job search. The Recruiting Office is located in Room 209 at 54 Dunster Street. Our office hours are 9:00-12:30 and 1:30-4:00. During the Fall, September-December, all information pertaining to recruiting will be found in the OCS Newsletter under On-Campus Recruiting. The OCS Newsletter is published weekly. During January, February, and March, the Recruiting Office publishes and distributes to all houses each Friday the Recruiting News. All information for Spring Recruiting will be found in this publication.

Interviews in the fall are conducted at the at the Office of Career Services, 54 Dunster Street. Interviews for Spring Recruiting will be held at Hilles Library (corner of Shepard and Garden Street) in the Colloquium Room.

Those students eligible to participate in the Recruiting Program are seniors and alumni of Harvard College, full-time graduate students and alumni of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. On occasion companies come on campus to recruit underclassmen for summer jobs and internship programs. These positions are listed separately in the Newsletter and follow the same procedures as fall recruiting listed below.

Fall Recruiting

There is a limited number of companies and students participating in the Fall Recruiting Program. Because of these limited numbers the procedures are less structured. When signing up for an interview in the Fall program you must come to the Recruiting Office and fill out a registration card and submit 1 copy of your resume for our files. In addition, you will need copies of your resume for each open or closed company you are signing up for. Under the open system, first-come, first-served, you submit your resume(s) and sign up for an interview(s) at the same time. Under the closed system students submit resumes in advance for company review and selection of interviewees. Resume submission deadlines are usually 3 weeks prior to the company visit; they are listed in the On-Campus Recruiting Section of the OCS Newsletter. Companies will then notify you by letter or mailgram that you have been selected for an interview. You then bring this letter to the recruiting office to sign up for a time.

Spring Recruiting

The Orientation Meeting for Spring Recruiting will be held on Monday, November 5th at 4:00 p.m. in the Science Center, Room "B," and a repeat meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 6th at 4:00 p.m. in the Science Center, Room "A". In order to participate in Spring Recruiting, you must attend one of these sessions. No exceptions will be made. At these meetings all materials pertaining to Spring Recruiting will be handed out. We will also thoroughly explain the point systems, computer forms, time tables, deadlines and all other information necessary for successful participation in the Spring Recruiting Program. We will answer all your questions at this time.

Many companies hold information meetings in the Fall to inform students about job opportunities. These meetings are listed in the O C S Newsletter. To sign up for these Meetings come to the Recruiting Office, Room 209. Most meetings are held in the evening at the Faculty Club. However some meetings will be held at the Charles Hotel or at a Harvard House or atOCS in the afternoon. Be sure to check theNewsletter for the time and location.
