Parents

It’s natural to wonder what’s next for your bright, high-achieving college student. In the case of career planning, the answers aren’t meant to come quickly. Your child is going through a process of self-discovery and career exploration. Career development will naturally evolve as students learn more about themselves, Tufts, and the world beyond campus.

The Tufts Career Center offers a broad spectrum of services, programs, and resources to support your child. Our goal is to empower students to apply their education and skills in practical settings, develop additional transferable skills and find satisfaction in their professional pursuits. Our support is available as a lifelong resource to alumni.

How You Can Support Your Student

Even though your child may be far from home, you still play an important role in his or her career decisions. Studies show that children are heavily influenced by parental views and expectations about careers. Encourage your student to explore new things and visit our office early.

Our career advisors are available through appointments and drop-in hours to support students with everything from writing a resume or cover letter, and exploring careers and majors to finding internships, jobs, and preparing for interviews.

We encourage you to look through our website to get a full picture of the programs (over 100 each semester) and resources we offer.
