Recruitment Resources for Veterans and Service Members

A Long History

Harvard is pleased to welcome veterans and service members to our community. Throughout the long history of the University, our students, faculty and staff have served in all branches of the military and served in all conflicts. Veterans’ leadership skills and capabilities are well suited to Harvard’s leadership-oriented culture. University-Wide Diversity and Recruitment Programs seeks to support university-wide recruitment of and outreach to veterans and active service members. 

Our job offerings encompass a wide variety of career areas. No matter where your military career has led you, there may be work at Harvard that matches your experience. Whether your expertise is in IT, operations, program management, security, finance or development, we encourage you to search our job listings and apply!

Outreach to Veterans

We post all of our open jobs on the Massachusetts state JobQuest site, so that our jobs are visible to veterans, and the Veterans Employment Officers at the state’s One-Stop Career Centers. Harvard’s employment recruiters often attend career fairs for veterans, such as the Hiring Our Heroes and RecruitMilitary events.
