Employer Spotlight: The Community Group’s Teaching Fellow Career Pathways Program

The Tufts Career Center will be hosting more than 30 employers at the upcoming Virtual Career Fair:  Social Impact and Civic Engagement on Thursday, February 11th from 1 pm – 4 pm EST. We wanted to highlight one of our employer partners, Community Group Inc., and their Teaching Fellow Career Pathways program so that students can learn more and to connect with their representatives on Feb. 11th.

Students are able to register and sign-up for 1:1 sessions and group information sessions beginning on Friday, February 5th.

We look forward to seeing you there!
