If you visit the Harvard Kennedy School and meet our students, we know you will like what you see.

Before you visit, login to JACK: Jobs and Careers for the Kennedy School, our job bank and career management system. Once registered, you can post opportunities and browse student resumes, targeting the policy areas and interests that most meet your recruitment needs.

We encourage you to schedule a visit and share the work of your organization with our students:

  • Offer an employer briefing where you can talk about the goals of your organization, specific projects, and current needs.
  • Attend an employer career fair.
  • Consider becoming a client for our Policy Analysis Exercise, a school-year project undertaken by all our graduating Master in Public Policy Students.
  • Take part in our off-campus Washington, D.C. (January) and New York City (March) career programming.

We invite you to contact our Employer Relations team for more information.

“When I was a senior official at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, I learned that two of the summer interns in my division were HKS students. I invited them and other HKS alums I happened to know to a beer and pizza get-together. Other HKS heard about this event and wanted me to put together a second event, which brought a crowd of two dozen. Soon, these informal gatherings expanded, regularized, and created momentum leading to the creation of the Harvard Club of Geneva. I am glad to have been the connecting catalyst for HKS alums serving at the international organizations over there.”
