The student job board and the Student Employment Office are your campus connection to on-campus employment opportunities. Career Services provides job listings, career counseling, paid and unpaid internships, resume workshops, interview coaching, and more. If you had a job and are unemployed through no fault of your own, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. Graduate students can apply for assistantships and UMass staff and faculty positions.
If you’re a UMass graduate and job hunting, make sure to check Career Services job postings, CareerConnect, and post graduate internship opportunities. You can also attend as many career fairs as you want. Career Services can help you with your resume, evaluating job offers, and researching potential employers. While you’re leveraging your best strategies to land the perfect job, surviving new or long term unemployment can be a challenge. Use the time to learn new skills and try to stay positive.
Remember, a job offer that seems to go to be true may be a scam – do your research, trust your instincts, and walk away from a situation that doesn't seem right.
