Professional Interest Councils (PICs)

Deepen Knowledge and Make Connections

Professional Interest Councils (PICs) are student organizations officially recognized by the Harvard Kennedy School Student Government (KSSG) in the fall of each academic year, whose primary programming centers around career development.

Getting involved with a PIC is a great way to deepen knowledge of and make connections in your professional area of interest.

The Harvard Kennedy School Office of Career Advancement (OCA) supports PICs in the design of career-related programming and assists in the publicity of their events. OCA also facilitates collaboration among PIC leaders in an effort to share best practices, coordinate ideas and share resources.
