    On-Campus Info Session: Harvardwood 101 & Summer Internship Program

    Friday, September 13, 2019 at 03:00 PM
    Office of Career Services in Cambridge, MA

    Current Harvard students, planning to apply for Harvardwood 101 to spend your 2020 J-term in Los Angeles? Want to learn more about obtaining and excelling at a summer internship in Hollywood? Attend this on-campus info session on both Harvardwood programs at the Office of Career Services.

    Harvardwood offers two programs for current students: Harvardwood 101, which takes place during the January term, and the Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP). At this event, you'll learn about the application procedure, timeline, and logistics of both programs, followed by a chat with current students (see bios below) who have done both programs. Finally, the info session will conclude with Q&As with the student panelists and Harvardwood's Executive Director.

    The Harvardwood 101 career exploration program brings two dozen current undergraduates to Los Angeles during the January term and provides a series of career-related activities in order to demystify Hollywood and educate them about careers in the entertainment industry.  The program began in 2003 and is cosponsored by Harvard University's Office for the Arts and the Office of Career Services. Harvardwood 101 begins with a mandatory "bootcamp" week of company visits, speaker panels, and networking mixers with Harvard alums who work in entertainment. Students also attend film and TV panels, in addition to getting a "behind the scenes" look at studios, working film sets, talent agencies, production companies, and music labels. All Harvardwood 101 students also have the opportunity to apply directly to selected summer internships at major entertainment companies. Detailed information will be given to all applicants once the 101 program begins in Los Angeles.
