NEW: Post a Short-Term Project

Short-term projects or micro-internships are a great way for students to build skills, earn money, and create invaluable alumni connections. If you have a project in mind, or have the capacity to develop one, please consider sharing this with Harvard students by posting in Crimson Careers.

  • Though short in timespan, these opportunities should be skill-building for the student, introduce them to specific work tasks or functions, and/or educate the student about a specific field.
  • We recommend all projects are paid, however unpaid projects will be considered if they have a significant learning component or support nonprofit or mission-driven initiatives.
  • Projects can be remote or in-person (as long as federal, state, and local authorities are permitting in-person work in your area), but remote is recommended at this time.
  • In-person projects cannot take place in someone’s home and unskilled tasks will be referred to the Student Employment Office.
  • OCS reserves the right to reject opportunities that are not skill building or educational.

 

Tips for Harvard Centers and Departments

Harvard University Centers and Departments that offer and/or coordinate internships for Harvard College and GSAS students and alumni are welcomed and encouraged to use Crimson Careers to promote their opportunities to students and to manage their application processes. This searchable database allows centers and departments to share internships in one easy-to-use system where students are already actively searching for summer opportunities. Examples of some departments already using Crimson Careers include the Harvard China Fund, the Center for Public Interest Careers, and the Work Abroad program through the Harvard German Department.
