Important note: The SBS Career Advising Team will continue to serve all SBS students during the transition to remote learning, including over spring break. Continue to make appointments through Handshake and select the type of meeting that works best for you (phone, video call, or corresponding via email).

You have a wide range of career resources and help available to you through the SBS Office of Career & Professional Development, the UMass Career Services office, and your academic department. Together, these resources are designed to support you wherever you are on your career planning path - whether you’re seeking an internship or starting to think about life after graduation - and to assist you in crafting a clear vision of what you want to accomplish.
