Whether you’re wondering where to beginlooking for an internship, or starting your job search, we will guide you through the process of your unique career development. 

While the UMass students are engaging in online classes, the University Career Centers are still here for you with online resources, job and internship postings, and phone or skype appointments.

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is continuing to closely monitor the challenges associated with COVID-19 and its impact on student internships. 

As such, we have partnered with Parker Dewey to provide the opportunity to pursue a Micro-Internship.

These opportunities are: 

  • short-term
  • professional
  • paid work experience
  • completely remote!

GET STARTED!
