Much More Than Job Placement: UMass Amherst Career Services prepares students for careers they love

Are you ready for a Zoom job interview? Dress up, use a bland background. Smile, sit up straight, or walk around—your posture greatly influences your tone of voice. UMass Amherst Career Services help students ace virtual interviews and find jobs, but its modern mission is much broader. According to Cheryl Brooks, associate provost of Career Development and Professional Connections, “We partner with students as they explore possibilities and design meaningful and authentic career paths for themselves.”
