In parntership with the Career Development Office, the Center for Business, Government & Society supports students in finding internship opportunities with a social or environmental purpose that meet their professional goals and objectives. Tuck GIVES is a student-organized program in which the Tuck community gathers to raise funds through a silent and live auction to supplement what employers are able pay. Since the Tuck GIVES auction began in 2001, the Tuck community has supported internships around the world.
At Tuck, where a close-knit community is one of our most treasured traditions, The Center for Business, Government & Society and the Career Development Office offer special support for students taking “non-traditional” paths to their first post-Tuck jobs. Career Circles are a chance for you to share information, resources and leads with one another and directors. Give and get help to stay on task with timetables and goals. Directors will draw on their deep knowledge of past students’ internships and experiences to suggest avenues to explore.
Each year as the first – and notoriously rigorous – term comes to a close, the Career Development Office (CDO), in conjunction with student clubs, organizes multiple Career Treks. The Treks offer a unique opportunity for first-year students to travel as a group, visiting sought after companies and speaking with key employees.
In addition to Career Development Office staff, CBGS faculty and staff are available to students for 1-on-1 career coaching. CBGS also creates links between talented students and alumni mentors.
