Kylia Teixeira ’19

Supporting Harvard’s Biggest Breakthroughs.

Kylia visited the Emmanuel’s Career Center for the first time during her freshman year. “I was applying to be a Resident Assistant and an Admissions Ambassador, and I really wanted both. I wanted to make sure I was doing everything I could to be the best candidate.” She did get both positions—and made key connections that would bolster her Emmanuel experience.

On campus, Kylia served as a Resident Assistant, through which she enjoyed creating community. She also earned the status of Gold Key Admissions Ambassador, which helped with her confidence. “I loved giving tours,” she says. “People don’t realize what a hidden gem Emmanuel is!

“It was really rewarding. Students always came up to me and said, ‘you were my tour guide!’ I like to think I was part of their decision to come here.”

By junior year, Kylia was still fully committed to her chemistry major, but knew working in a laboratory all day wasn’t the best fit for her. An influential professor asked if she’d ever considered research administration. Days later, a position for a research administration intern at Harvard came through the Career Center, and her Career Advisor put her name forward.

In Harvard’s recruitment process, Kylia rose above graduate students to gain both an internship and then full-time job.

Beginning in summer 2018, Kylia joined the University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) as a research administration services intern in the area of compliance. Under her watchful eye and command of complex data tools, she helped principal investigators stay on track with grant budgets and reporting and get support during pre- and post-award stages. As a bonus, she was able to dive deep into some of the groundbreaking scholarship emerging from one of the world’s top research universities.

After graduation, Kylia was offered and accepted a full-time position at Harvard, where she serves as a Research Compliance Analyst.
