For Prospective Students

Fletcher launches remarkable careers across sectors: private, public, non-profit, and international organizations. Sifting through the opportunities can be both exciting and overwhelming, and students come to this process from a variety of positions. While some students arrive at Fletcher with a well-defined plan for the next step of their career, others are less certain. Some students are looking to pivot into a new career path, while others are looking to continue in the same trajectory. No matter where students are on this spectrum, the Office of Career Services (OCS) is here to partner with them to help find success.
