This fall, the Isenberg School of Management held their annual Career Day. The event was held virtually using Career Fair Plus, a platform designed to host virtual career fairs, featuring one on one sessions as well as a breakout room feature for smaller group sessions. 

Melissa Salva, director of employer engagement at Isenberg’s Chase Career Center, notes that despite the change to a virtual format, employers were very eager to participate. More employers participated this year than last fall’s in-person fair, and 634 students participated. A total of 2,398 individual meetings with recruiters occurred during the course of the event.

The moment that seemed so far away for such a long time is finally here- it’s my senior year! These past three years have flown by and I can’t believe I’m in my last year at UMass Amherst. Because I am a senior this fall, I wanted to take fun and interesting courses that would challenge me one last time before I graduate. I am loving all of my Fall 2020 classes so far, and I want other University of Massachusetts students to learn more about these incredible courses too! Read on about the classes I am taking this semester.
