🐘 Jumbos4Jumbos is Live!

 Jumbos4Jumbos is an opportunity for Tufts alumni to offer projects and micro internships that will provide current students with exposure to an industry or with a project that will allow them to build new skills such as data analysis, marketing, etc.

This year the program will be managed via our student-alumni flash-mentoring platform, The Herd, under Projects. The site will make the process seamless and alumni will be able to self-manage and monitor the process from beginning to end.

Employers with traditional full-time positions and summer internships (remote or in-person) can still post those positions on our Handshake site for all our students and alumni to access and apply for per our usual process.
