Below are a number of useful links we have compiled.

Career Exploration

Few students come to college knowing they want to go into business. Business at Harvard is often thought of as recruiting, I-banking, and consulting, but there is a lot more out there. The business tutors are happy to meet with you to talk about career exploration. Also, OCS is an incredible resource for business careers, and we encourage you to make an appointment with one of the counselors there if you are interested.

Case Interview


  • OCS Recruiting Website All recruiting students must go through them. Note that deadlines happen very early in the year! Also, you can sign up at OCS for a videotaped mock interview with analysis afterwards. This is great way to see how you actually look and sound in the interview.
  • McKinsey Case Interview Site Useful site from the consulting giant with sample case interviews.
  • BCG Case Interview Site Excellent site from the noble consulting genius with sample case interviews.
  • Great commercial site from a couple of Stanford Business School grads geared towards the recruiting student. Has industry analyses, intros to case interviews, and a whole host of other useful info.
  • The Vault Another great commercial recruiting site that is chock full of information.

Preparing your Resume and Cover letter

Here are useful documents from OCS on preparing your resume and cover letter.
