CAREER WAVE STARTED AS A SIMPLE IDEA.
Create opportunities for Tulane Alumni and Parents to interact, network and mentor Tulane students so they can reach their full career potential. We don’t expect them to hire the students directly but provide guidance so they can be hired.
The Tulane Takeover events provide opportunities for students to meet, network and receive mentorship from Tulane Parents and Alumni who are well-positioned to provide assistance. Held in multiple cities across the US, these events connect students with professionals where they live and work.
Executive in Residence
Imagine getting a master class in career success from current and retired executives who have reached the pinnacle of their professional careers. The Executive in Residence program brings current and former CEOs and other high-level professionals to campus multiple times during the semester to lecture, speak in classes and then provide one-on-one career guidance to students.
The Career Wave Signature Event is our unique, one day career conference held on campus in New Orleans that brings together elements of mentorship, career networking and career planning under one umbrella for an impactful day of career exploration.
Tulane to Hollywood
The opportunities are boundless for students wishing to enter the world of film, television and digital media production. The Tulane to Hollywood program is a series of panels, networking sessions and classroom presentations where students meet some of the leaders in the industry.
