Keep In Mind
 

Space is limited, so please only register for one FY18 career development opportunity.

Mentoring and HLDP:

  • First-come, first-served: Eligible staff will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please keep in mind that FAS has limited slots and we will accommodate requests as best we can.
  • Waitlist: For HLDP, if a course is full you will not see the "enroll" button. To add your name to the waitlist, click the "show interest" text at the bottom of the page.
  • Pending approval: All enrollments are “pending approval” until eligibility has been checked.
  • Participation surveys: After enrolling, you will receive a short follow-up questionnaire. Please be sure to complete this questionnaire to complete your enrollment request.
  • Billing code: You will need a department billing code to register for HLDP. While the cost of these programs is covered centrally by the FAS, your department will be charged a fee if you drop out of the program close to the start date or if you miss several sessions.
  • Fall/Spring Sessions: Certain courses are run multiple times per year. Be sure to use the Harvard Training Portal to sign up for the desired cohort.

CareerPlus:

  • Application: FAS staff interested in CareerPlus will work with their manager to complete a short application and submit it to hr_programs@fas.harvard.edu.
  • Selection of participants: Review of applications will be based on professional achievement and the written professional goals in the application. A review committee will select CareerPlus participants.
