Career development is a process where employees strategically explore, plan and create their future paths with feedback and guidance from their managers and information and resources from the University. Current staff members are encouraged to use the resources across Harvard– including your manager, human resources, training and education opportunities – and to see Harvard as an active partner in advancing your career. We’re committed to internal mobility for staff members, whether that means growing in place by exploring new responsibilities and enrichments, or advancing to a new position.
Resources for Internal Candidates
Harvard offers a variety of classes and tools are available to current staff to help you to excel in your current role and get ready for your next position.
As you consider internal opportunities, maybe you’ll be interested in tuition reimbursement for an advanced degree. Maybe you’ll be looking for resources to help you prepare for a different position, or skills training for a stretch position. There are additional opportunities for those at the managerial level, including manager training and Executive Education Fellowships, which let you learn and network with other managers and leaders.
If you’re ready to do your part to advance yourself, we’re ready to help you pursue the future you want. To learn more about career options and resources for current employees, please visit our Career Development pages.
