Career services isn’t much help when it comes to making a science or engineering focused resume. We plan to bring representatives from local Boston companies in to speak to the club about what they look for in an applicant, and in doing so we hope to facilitate networking opportunities with those companies. These events would also apply to students interested in career/job opportunities as well as internships.

Leave a comment if you have any ideas for career- or internship-related events


Preliminary event ideas include…

How to build a BME/engineering/science resume

  • ¬†How to attack a career fair with your resume

Industry representatives

  • Pharma, medical devices, biotech…

Local company tours

Non-Tufts labs

  • BU, MIT, Harvard


On September 24, 2013, Professor Sam Liggero from the Gordon Institute of Engineering Management lead a resume workshop specifically tailored toward students with engineering and science backgrounds.

Students learned how to promote their strengths and sell themselves in both the written (resume) and verbal (career fair) format. They also discussed how to conduct pre-Fair company research, and talk about some companies that will be at the Fair.

We will be holding these periodically for students to prepare for career fairs and internship searches, so make sure to be on the look out!
