Karen Dankers

As a Career Advisor, I have the opportunity to advise students interested in finance and consulting, as well as government, law, and international affairs, and general career areas. I love helping students figure out which career path is the best fit for them. I work with students to create resumes, cover letters, find internship and job opportunities, and improve networking and interviewing skills, including preparation for technical finance and consulting case interviews.

I grew up in Rhode Island and majored in Finance at the College of William and Mary. After college, I worked in management consulting at PricewaterhouseCoopers and in project management at CIGNA. I completed a Master’s degree in Higher Education Management at the University of Pennsylvania.  Prior to joining the Tufts Career Center in 2007, I worked as the Associate Director of Career Services for Wharton Undergraduates. I am excited to continue building relationships with Tufts students and aim to meet students where they are, academically, professionally, and personally. Outside of work, I love to run, hike, play tennis, and spend time with my 3 kids.

Most interesting/unusual job: Writing interface and data conversion computer programs during my consulting days!
