Recruit at Tufts

Fall 2022 Recruitment Update: We will be utilizing a hybrid programming model for Fall 2022. Employer engagement activities may be conducted virtually or in-person.

Employers are invited to recruit at Tufts University through a variety of methods including career fairs, interviews, coffee chats, as well as developing events such as workshops to reach our student population.

  • If your organization would like to schedule virtual interviews, informal coffee chats, a workshop or to discuss another engagement activity, please contact Willa Mayo, Recruiting Coordinator.

Employers should review our Employers Policies and negotiation guidelines as these policies will guide your partnership and interactions with the Career Center staff and students at Tufts University.

Interviews

Employers may schedule one-on-one interviews with students throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These can be held either virtually or in-person. Virtual interviews can be conducted via the tool that the employer is most comfortable using and that is accessible to our students (at no cost). These may include Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, and others. In-person interviews will be held in our Career Center in Dowling Hall (419 Boston Avenue, 7th floor).

Career Programming

Tufts University partners with employers to offer engaging programming that highlights a content area such as virtual interviewing, developing your personal brand, highlighting an industry or sector, etc. We recommend that you schedule a time to speak with Willa Mayo, Recruiting Coordinator, to discuss your recruitment goals and programming ideas for the best way to engage with Tufts students.

We are committed to partnering with your organization to develop content-driven events with our student population such as coffee chats, tech talks, and other creative ideas you might want to discuss with an employer relations team member.

When requesting an event in Handshake, please specify the event along with the format that you plan to use for your upcoming event. Our team will also make recommendations on preferred dates and times for events and workshops based on the availability of a certain date or competition with other events and activities happening at Tufts. We ask that you please review the Tufts Academic Calendar to avoid university breaks or religious holidays.

Coffee Chats

Tufts University also works with employers to schedule one-on-one or small group conversations called coffee chats to discuss your organization, opportunities available, as well as sharing insights into the application process. We recommend offering these opportunities around other events such as before and/or after a career fair as a chance to engage with your selected candidates. Coffee chats can be requested and scheduled through Handshake similar to the interviews above.

Tufts University partners with employers to offer engaging programming that highlights a content area such as virtual interviewing, developing your personal brand, highlighting an industry or sector, etc. We recommend that you schedule a time to speak with Sue Atkins, Associate Director of Employer Relations to discuss your recruitment goals and programming ideas for the best way to engage with Tufts students.

Career Fairs

Tufts will be hosting career fairs in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

[STUDENT NO-SHOW POLICY]: As a policy, we ask that students who are no longer able to meet with an employer for a one-on-one session or interview give 24 hours notice. This is as a courtesy to the employer and to other students who would be interested in filling the slot. If the event has started, we kindly ask that they keep their commitment as a representation of not only themselves, but the Tufts community. No-shows may result in repercussions, including sending an apology letter to the employer, meeting with a Career Center staff member to discuss next steps, or losing Handshake access.
