Career Services works in partnership with employers from a wide range of fields to assist in recruiting students for jobs, internships, and cooperative education positions (co-ops). We will work with you every step of the way, helping you target prospective employees in a way that is more effective than blanket advertising.



UMass Amherst is utilizing Handshake, a job and internship search platform for students and employers.  Employers can post a job or internship, and students can search and apply according to the directions you set.  Three colleges and about half of our students piloted Handshake this past year, and now our remaining colleges and students will be using it to support their career searches.

Many of you may already have Handshake accounts.  But if you don’t, accounts on Handshake are free!  Create an account at https://joinhandshake.com/employers/ Please add University of Massachusetts Amherst as a School so you can post jobs and internships.  We are also using Handshake to set up career fairs and events, so be sure to add your profile to the system today.

The Isenberg School of Management Chase Career Center will continue to use IsenbergWorks Symplicity platform, so if you have positions for multiple majors, please post in both Handshake and IsenbergWorks.

Attached are employer guidelines to help you get started in Handshake.
