Career Planning for CMES AM Students

Most of our AM students enter our program with a specific career goal in mind. CMES and Harvard offer a number of career planning resources for all of our students.

Through CMES, we offer Career Exploration Workshops, a Job and Fellowships Board where we list any jobs and fellowships we are made aware of, and a network of alumni working in many job sectors that have agreed to talk with students who contact them.

Harvard also offers an array of career services. For more information check out the Office of Career Services page.

On the right you’ll also find a list of online job search tools that may also be of use.

AM Career Exploration Workshops

The Center for Middle Eastern Studies occasionally hosts career workshops specifically for CMES AM students. These workshops offer AM students the opportunity to meet with a variety of professionals who work in some area of Middle Eastern Studies. Guest speakers meet with students in an informal setting to discuss career planning and goals. Past workshops have included visits from journalists, policy makers, U.S. State Department officials, scholars in Washington D.C., NGO's, think tanks, etc.
