Services for Students and Alumni

Career Consultations

Career consultations generally assist in identifying strategies related to potential professional fields or career goals and may include topics such as professional planning and credentialing strategies, networking assistance, skill gap assessments, interview preparation and coaching, or preparation for salary negotiation.

Career consultation is available by appointment to students and alumni of all HDS degree programs. For alumni, minimal fees may apply in some cases to cover the cost of materials. To schedule an appointment, contact us at careers@hds.harvard.edu, noting the nature of your inquiry, your availability and preferred blocks of time.

Please note that for students interested in ministry, career consultation is not to be confused with denominational counseling, which is available through the Office of Ministry Studies and/or the ordaining body. Career consultation is also not to be confused with academic advising, available through faculty advisers.
