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.

Tulane Remote Internship Program

Programs such as the Tulane Remote Internship Program allow students to gain practical experience with national companies while on campus and then visit their companies during Fall Break.

Tulane Takeovers

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.

As we have adjusted to changing the way we conduct events, especially in person events, we changed the traditional Tulane Takeover events to our first ever – Tulane Takeover Virtually Everywhere.

These networking events will be held on May 26, 27 and 28 and will allow students to interact with alumni. parents and other professionals to assist in navigating this new world we are living in and provide career guidance and advice.
