Jumbos4Jumbos – Student FAQ

This season’s Jumbos4Jumbos program will run from December 27, 2022 through January 13, 2023.

Jumbos4Jumbos is an initiative whereby Tufts alumni offer projects/micro-internships/gigs that students can do to gain career-related skills.

You’ll find these opportunities in The Herd under “Projects.” The Herd is our alumni flash-mentoring platform, and if you haven’t signed in before, you can create an account with your Tufts UTLN to gain access to our alumni mentoring community in addition to accessing the Jumbos4Jumbos projects.

Compiled in the resource below are answers to commonly asked questions surrounding Jumbos4Jumbos projects.

Remember, if you choose to apply and are selected for a project, it is not only a representation of yourself, but of the entire Tufts student community. Please follow through on your commitment. Put care and consideration into your work, including submitting a professional application (take a look at our website for guidance on creating a professional cover letter and resume).
