Associate Director, Employer Relations

Sue Atkins

My role in the Career Center is to work with employers across all industries to help connect them to our Tufts community of faculty and departments as well as connect students to internships, co-ops, and full-time positions after graduation. The Employer Relations team also partners with employers to host events and workshops that provide opportunities for students to learn about industries and undertake their own career exploration while at Tufts.

Most interesting/unusual job: I served as a tour guide for the Space Needle in Seattle, WA during graduate school. I got to speak with lots of folks from around the world and learned a lot about the Pacific Northwest.
