Quick Career Questions and Resume Review Walk-Ins
Want to get your resume or cover letter reviewed? Have quick questions about internships or career resources? Career Center walk-ins have moved online! We offer asynchronous and synchronous options.
Asynchronous: (submit your questions/documents and an advisor will send you feedback), see this Google Form (make sure you are signed into your UMass Gmail account).
Synchronous: summer hours are Mondays 2-5pm and Wednesdays 9am-12pm. Use this link during those times to speak with a Graduate Career Advisor. If you are not let into the meeting within a few minutes, the advisor is meeting with another student. Try entering the meeting again in 15 minutes.
