The Office of Career Planning is eager to partner with SPHHS faculty and staff to provide our students with career advice that will help them make the most of their academic major. Some ways we can work with you:

  1. Workshops: Teaching a class and have a schedule conflict?  Don’t cancel class, call us to fill in instead! Our Career Advisors offer a variety of presentations geared towards first-year students to master’s.  Topics range from finding your passion to practical job search skills. We are also able to design specific workshops based on you and your students’ needs with some advance warning.
    Please contact Mary Ellen Liseno to arrange a classroom visit (meliseno@umass.edu).
     
  2. Student Assistance: Do you have students asking for career assistance? Send your students to see our highly trained Career Ambassador Peer Advisors for resume, cover letter, and personal statement reviews as well as help with internships and jobs. Daily walk-in hours in Arnold 136. Contct them at 413-545-2708, careerambassadors@umass.edu. 
     
  3. Internships: Let's chat about the importance of experiential learning! Looking for internship ideas for your students?  Handshake is our campus-wide  career platform for undergraduate, graduate students and alumni. If you would like an account, request one here https://umass.joinhandshake.com
     
  4. Our annual SPHHS Career Networking and Development Conference is a fantastic way for students to learn about career and internship opportunities, network with alumni and employers, and connect with other students. We encourage your participation in the event and appreciate your support for student involvement.

The Career Planning office, part of the Center for Student Success is here for you. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for any career, internship, or student related concerns.
