Internships and Career Services Spotlight

A snapshot of the ICS sponsored Public Speaking Workshop last week!

The Internships and Career Services committee at the IOP works to promote and advance jobs and careers for Harvard undergraduates in politics and public service. The committee assists in the staffing and execution of Job Talks and Career Roundtables throughout the school year, with members working at two to three events per semester. Additionally, it works to publicize the established opportunities at the IOP, including, Director’s Internships, Summer Stipend Funding, and Research Assistantships. ICS also provides committee members with job search support through learning sessions at weekly meetings.

"The most rewarding aspect of ICS has been helping others. In particular, ICS allows students to figure out what they want to do with their lives, how to get there, and what skills they need to succeed. I dedicate my time to ICS because I know how important it is for students to have career-related experiences in politics and public service while in college, so that they are prepared to take on these roles after they graduate."
— Spencer Shapiro '19, Chair of ICS

The ICS does not just offer jobs and internships - they create and sponsor a wide range of programming that offers skill-based workshops and career roundtables with professionals in politics and public service related fields.

Every Friday until the end of the semester, we will be spotlighting one of the IOP's programs to share all of the amazing work that they do. Look out for each week's email!
