JACK: A Robust Jobs Bank and Career Management System


Find Jobs, Post Resumes, Manage Your Career

JACK: Jobs and Careers for the Kennedy School is the Office of Career Advancement (OCA)'s comprehensive job bank and career management system available to enrolled students and alumni. JACK is developed by Symplicity and highly customized to meet the needs of HKS students and alumni.

Thousands of targeted jobs, fellowships, and summer internships are posted in JACK every year. JACK provides access to an extensive database of employers working in areas of interest to our students and graduates. In addition, JACK includes a document section where you will store your resume and other job search materials. A filterable, electronic collection of current students' resumes are available to employers through the system.

Newly matriculated students gain access to JACK at a specified time during the summer (usually late-June) before their matriculation. Alumni retain access throughout their careers.



The above screenshot of the JACK homepage navigation bar will give you a sense of the various modules in the system. Current students will find all career resources on KNet, the HKS Intranet (login required).
