In collaboration with other departments at Fletcher, we’ve developed a rich suite of career preparation tools, informational career trips and networking opportunities, employer showcases, and one-on-one training that you can access at any stage of your career.
Career Education and Resources
Our career education services start with the fundamentals and then build on those foundations through sector-specific programming, skill-building workshops, and a portfolio of digital resources. This individualized style of programming empowers students by providing them with the tools they need to build a meaningful career.
We provide a range of career resources to help students explore different industries and job functions, network with employers, and prepare for interviews. From individual coaching and career development workshops, to industry and sector-specific resources and events, you’ll find a number of different ways to explore all of your career options.
Every year OCS organizes informational career trips to New York and Washington DC so that students can connect with employers and alumni working in the field. Each trip includes an employer site visit, panel discussions, and student-alumni receptions. It’s a unique opportunity to interact with industry practitioners and gain valuable insight into the organizations that interest you most.
New York City
We offer students two trips to New York City each year. The first, organized by Fletcher's International Business Club, focuses on organizations in the private sector, and takes place in October. The second, which is organized by the Office of Career Services, focuses on the United Nations and non-profit organizations, as well as some private sector companies.
The Washington DC Career Trip is a two-day event that includes representative organizations from sectors of greatest interest to the Fletcher community. Classes are canceled so all students may participate. The trip also includes a student-alumni reception typically attended by more than 500 guests, making it Fletcher's largest alumni event outside of Boston.

Every year, employers from various industries and sectors visit Fletcher to meet our students and provide in-depth, on-campus information sessions. These sessions are an invaluable opportunity for you to meet with – and learn about – the organizations that best align with your career goals.
In collaboration with many of our yearly conferences, we provide employers with exhibition space so that they can meet with students interested in learning about specific careers in their organizations.
Summer Internship Assistance
Internships are a crucial part of the Fletcher experience, and an important way to continue broadening your career options. The OCS offers many different opportunities for students to connect with organizations that offer internships. We bring organizations to campus, coordinate career trips, and provide a job board that highlights different opportunities.
