Vocational Explorations
There are few better ways for undergraduates to learn more about prospective careers than by taking advantage of the many internship and externship programs available through the Harvard and Radcliffe alumni associations. The Radcliffe Externship Program, now in its twentieth year, matches undergraduate women with alumnae for the week of spring break; by literally "shadowing" the older women at home and on the jobs, the students learn about both sides of their mentors' lives. Harvard Career Internships, run by the Office of Career Services in conjunction with the Harvard Alumni Association, also seeks to match up undergraduates and alumni for career exploration during a working assignment over spring break. In addition, the Student Employment Office runs a program for summer internships that enables alumni around the country who may be looking for summer help to post job descriptions at the College in any number of ways. Read on for further details.

The deadline for participation in the Radcliffe Externships is early in January. Contact Susan Arnott by calling (617) 496-8661, via e-mail at "externships@radcliffe.edu", or on the World Wide Web at "http://www.radcliffe.edu/undergrad/externs/" for more information.

To find out how to get involved with Harvard Career Internships, even if you aren't able to offer a formal internship, e-mail Nancy Saunders at "nesaund@fas.harvard.edu" or call (617) 495-2595. January 6 is the deadline for posting an internship that will be included in the Office of Career Services catalog.

To post a paid or unpaid summer internship, contact the Student Employment Office, Byerly Hall, 8 Garden Street, Cambridge 02138, call (617) 495-8422, or visit the SEO's website at "http://www.seo.harvard.edu". All positions posted on the website are also posted on the SEO's bulletin boards. Please make sure to identify yourself as an alumnus.
