Career Planning

You can schedule a professional advising appointment via Handshake with either Mary Ellen Liseno, Director for Career Planning (meliseno@umass.edu), or Erin Cherewatti (echerewatti@umass.edu), Assistant Director for Career Planning. They can help you with clarifying your career goals, finding an internship or other field experience, writing a resume and many other important steps toward pursuing a career. You’ll find more information and career resources on the SPPHS Careers website.

You can also meet with a Career Ambassador Peer Advisor to have your resume, cover letter or personal statement reviewed. They can also help you with Handshake and answer general career advice questions. Career Ambassadors are available in-person during Walk-in Hours or can provide an electronic review via email.
