Congratulations, Graduates!

UMass Amherst Class of 2022 – you did it!!!  We’re so proud of you and of all you have accomplished during your time at UMass – both in-person and remotely!

This has been a truly unprecedented time to be a college student, and you have inspired us with your perseverance when you felt like quitting, your strength even when you didn’t feel strong, and your ingenuity in figuring out how to make things work for yourself.  You led by your example, and you proved that you could be successful even in the toughest of challenges.  This has set you up for success in whatever comes next for you.

You will take this experience with you into a strong job market!  You have access to your SBS career team for six months after graduation, so if you haven’t met with us, haven’t had your resume reviewed, need help strategizing or networking, or anything else career related, make an appointment to meet with us!  You can do that via your Handshake account.  Log in with your UMass login info, find the career center tab, and click appointments.  You never lose access to Handshake, but you’ll probably want to update your Handshake account to use your personal email.

Congratulations again on this amazing accomplishment!  We can’t wait to see what you do next!
