The Block Career Services Center continues to support Friedman School alumni as they make strides toward career goals following graduation. In addition to using the resources on the Block Career Center site, alumni have the opportunity to schedule career advising appointments with members of our team. We also encourage alumni to:

Join the Tufts Friedman School Alumni Association Facebook and LinkedIn groups. We post jobs, information about events, and alumni opportunities.

Join the Tufts University Career Network on LinkedIn. This is Tufts University’s largest career networking community for alumni and students from all Tufts schools, as well as faculty, staff, employers and friends. The forum allows group members to share career-related information and jobs and internships, request informational interviews, and provide advice across industries and geographic locations.

Note: By joining the Friedman School and/or Tufts University Career Network LinkedIn groups, you indicate openness to responding to requests from Tufts students and alumni seeking career advice and informational interviews.

Join the Tufts Online Alumni Directory. Register today to search the directory for all Tufts alumni worldwide, network with alumni, take advantage of library privileges, and more!
