How can I learn more about the Career Center?
- Spend 10 minutes looking through our website. Check out our “Learn More About …” content such as Exploring Your Interests, Careers & Majors or Writing Resumes & Cover Letters. You can also review our Identity-Based Resources and other career resources that you can filter by categories like career exploration, resumes & cover letters, and internship search.
- Start to get to know our Career Communities. Career Communities are a way to connect with people, information, and resources to explore interests and connect to potential opportunities. As a student, you’ll be able to explore and follow any career communities that align with your interests, goals, and career plans.
How does the Career Center communicate with me throughout the year?
You’ll receive 2 messages from the Career Center every week:
- Career eNews contains your weekly announcements from the Tufts Career Center
- On TRACC (Tufts Recent Activity in Career Communities) is your customizable industry-specific email. Prior to your arrival at Tufts, you’ll receive more info about how to update your On TRACC preferences so that the content you get each week — blog posts, job/internship listings, events & more — best matches your needs and interests.
