#GetHiredOnHandshake: Events and More

Hi Jumbos, and Happy Halloween to those who celebrate!

The year is speeding by. If you’re starting to look for jobs or internships for this summer, one great way to learn about awesome companies you may be unfamiliar with is to attend events. There are new events being added to Handshake everyday – info sessions, coffee chats, panel discussions, career fairs, and more! Most events are virtual, so you can log on and join from wherever you are.

Finding Events on Handshake

To check out upcoming events, simply click on Events at the in the upper-left corner of the Handshake page, to the right of Jobs.


All events and fairs posted to Tufts will be listed here, and you can use the filters at the top of the page to narrow displayed results. Once you click on an event, you can use the bookmark icon to save it to come back to later, or you can go ahead and register for the event by clicking Register in the right hand corner.


Once you’ve registered for the event, the event will be added to the Your schedule on the right of the Event search page. You will also receive a confirmation email sent to the email address on your Handshake account.


Once you’ve registered for your event, you’ll be able to access and launch them by navigating to the event in Handshake via the registration confirmation email, events search page, or automated notifications.

Tufts Career Center Events

The Career Center organizes several events throughout the year, as well, which you can find right on our website. Keep checking back – there are many exciting events coming down the pipeline this spring!
