Those pursuing careers in industry and government have worked for technology companies such as Pixar, Google, and IBM; defense contractors such as Northrop Grumman; policy and research organizations such as the National Institutes of Health; banking and investment firms like Citigroup; environmental consulting groups like Boston-based CDM; and the U.S. State Department.

Others have become entrepreneurs. Our graduates started Tacit Knowledge Systems, SupplyWorks, Inc., and Zappos. In fact, some of the most well-known companies in the world were started by Harvard graduates—for example, Electronic Arts, 3Com, Sun Microsystems, and Microsoft.

If you do get into Harvard, least to say you that you do not have to worry about getting into a company or let’s say starting one of your own.
