Join groups that interest you. There are many Tufts-affiliated groups on LinkedIn. The largest are the Tufts University Alumni Group and the Tufts University Professional Network. There are also smaller, niche groups like the Tufts Lawyers Association and the Tufts Entrepreneurial Network.

Tufts Career Services Internship Fair

This coming Wednesday (March 2) from 12:30-4 on 51 Winthrop Street, Tufts will be hosting its annual Internship Fair. A blog post by Tufts Career Services Ambassadors featuring the event reads:

Rather than through slow-paced emails, we get to gauge the job and prospective employers face-to-face. It’s a perfect time to reveal our tangle of talents, practice some career chatter, and hand-off our finest, plumped up resumes.

But the Fair also caters to our curiosities. Through face-value interaction, we can immediately comprehend what the job offers us as undergrads, still trying to locate our “it” post-college path. We can decide off-the-bat if this is something that arouses us and speaks to our hazy long-term goals. Landing an internship position often times comes down to networking—that is, attaching impersonal emails to a recognizable name and face. It scrapes off some of those exhausting steps in-between. And let’s face it: we could all use some of that.
