COVID-19 Guidance

The Student Employment Office expects that employers will adhere to the Harvard University standards on health and safety.

We urge employers to inform themselves on the facts of COVID-19 and to practice good personal hygiene, social distancing, and other CDC-recommended measures to lower risk of transmission. More information is available about COVID -19 University guidelines on the main Harvard website.

Please refer to our COVID-19 Undergraduate and Graduate pages for any questions regarding your employment and the COVID-19 disruption.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, email phishing and job scams may be on the rise. Please always be vigilant and exercise common sense when responding to any job posting in the SEO Jobs Database or any other job-search databases.

To learn more about job scams, what to look for, and how to protect yourself, please visit the Federal Trade Commissions website.
