💁‍♀️ Happy Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society and has been celebrated in the United States during the month of March since 1987. In observance of the month, the Tufts Employer Relations team wanted to share resources on ways to incorporate the month into office environments and provide additional information on gender equality in the workplace.

J.E.T. Jumbo Employer Thursday: Join Us On Campus to Highlight Your Co-op Opportunities to Engineers

We are seeking employers that offer Co-op Opportunities in Engineering for our undergraduate and graduate students for our J.E.T. Jumbo Employer Thursday Event on Thursday, March 28th from 11 am – 4 pm in our Mayer Campus Center.  

This event is for employers to host an information table, be part of our co-op panel presentation, and to offer 1:1 interviews or coffee chats to meet with Tufts students. This is part of programming to launch new graduate co-ops in our School of Engineering this spring.

Please email Sue Atkins, Associate Director of Employer Relations for more information at susan.atkins@tufts.edu.

Join the Employer Relations team at Tufts for a roundtable discussion on Friday, April 12th – 12 noon – 1 pm pm via Zoom. We will be sharing more about the undergraduate and graduate Co-op programs in the School of Engineering. In addition, we will share how employers can participate in the program and learn about programs that will be hosted on-campus and virtually to engage with our students. A Zoom link will be sent to attendees once you register for the event.

We look forward to seeing you at our employer roundtable discussion!
