Greetings from the Tufts Career Center
At this point, we know that many of you are (understandably) concerned about post-grad plans. Perhaps you're wondering if it will be possible to get a job, or perhaps your plans have fallen through.
If that's the case, we encourage you to research what is happening with the organizations you want to work with (see below for a tool to help you). It's possible that they have a project that you could work on remotely for the summer and beyond. In addition, we'll continue to provide you with job search support and timely advice in these weekly newsletters.
Also, realize that many other college students are in the same boat. Graduate schools and future employers will understand that this summer is an anomaly. That said, don’t be reticent! You can use your time creatively to learn a new skill, complete a project you've always wanted to do, create a new body of work, or volunteer to help others. It is what you make of this situation that will show your competencies and character to future employers.
Finally, remember to network, network, network. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time, and the benefits are well worth it. Keep reading to learn about the many resources that can help you.
