UMass Amherst graduates have a one year grace period following graduation during which they may use all of Career Services’ resources – speak with a career advisor, take advantage of our Walk-In hours to work with a staff member, open a credentials file, maintain an account on UMass Amherst CareerConnect, attend workshops and career fairs, and participate in on-campus interviewing.
After one year, UMass Amherst alumni are welcome to maintain or open an account on CareerConnect where they can access job listings and find out about upcoming career fairs. Alumni may also attend our workshops, utilize our Credentials Service for five years after graduation, and may use our computer lab to access the Internet and print out resumes for their job hunt. After the initial one year, alumni can access additional tools maintained by the UMass Alumni Association, including:
The UMass Amherst Alumni Advisor Network
through which you can receive free career services
from UMass Amherst alumni in various fields
