If your interview date does not appear in Symplicity on March 17 after 12 noon, please contact Steve Donovan at to discuss the status of your registration.

Please note: Given the size and scope of our recruitment program, along with equitably rotating the employer interview dates each year, we ask that you limit requests to change your interview date and understand that we may not be able to honor date change requests.

Reserve Interview Rooms / Hospitality Suite / Sleeping Accommodations

After confirming your organization's EIP interview date, please take the following steps:

  1. Complete the Charles Hotel Room Reservation Form to reserve your organization's interview room(s) and, if desired, a hospitality suite and sleeping rooms.
  2. Return the form to Louise Myint, The Charles Hotel Director of Business Travel Sales, at or by fax at 617-661-5017. Please contact Louise with any questions regarding room reservations at the Charles Hotel at the email address provided or 617-661-5040. The Charles Hotel will confirm receipt of your request within 1 business day.
  3. If you prefer to reserve sleeping accommodations at another venue than the Charles Hotel, please see the chart below for reservation information.

Additional Notes:

  1. Your interview room(s) at the Charles Hotel can only be used for interviews; interview rooms cannot be used as a sleeping space. Interview rooms will be available to you from 8 am to 6 pm on the day of your organization's interviews.
  2. All interview room requests that correspond to schedules approved by OCS are guaranteed by the Charles Hotel. Louise will confirm receipt of your request shortly after submission.
  3. Requests for hospitality suites and sleeping rooms will be confirmed by the Charles Hotel at a later date.
  4. We strongly encourage you to book only as many interview and sleeping rooms as you reasonably expect your organization will need. Please do not over-book with the expectation that you will be able to reduce your interview room block as EIP approaches. If you have any adjustments to make to the number of interview schedules, please notify OCS about those changes as soon as possible by emailing Steve Donovan at OCS will communicate the change to The Charles Hotel.

We appreciate your participation and look forward to assisting you with your recruitment efforts at Harvard. Please direct any questions to Steve Donovan, Recruitment Manager, at 617-495-2959.
