Friedman School Featured Alumni

Schedule a Conversation with an Alumni Volunteer Today!

Featured Alumni engage in career conversations with current Friedman School students, i.e., short conversations that provide knowledge or skill development. All meetings are 30 minutes and take place via Zoom (with a call-in option).

The Featured Alumni listed below are organized by our 7 Career Directions. When you click into an alumni profile, you’ll see a link to schedule a meeting with the individual via Calendly. After scheduling, you’ll receive a meeting confirmation with Zoom details.

*Don’t see a time that works for you? We encourage you to browse different alumni profiles to connect with another individual.

Note: To allow for the maximum number of Friedman School participants, students may schedule only one conversation with a given alumni volunteer. In addition, if you are not a Tufts Friedman School student, please do not book a conversation time, as the slots are intended for current Friedman School students only.
