Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Students can search for jobs and post their résumés with the campus Career Services, but your ability to get a job after graduation relies heavily on how much experience you have. So, at some point during your four years at UMass, or however long it takes you to graduate, find and complete an internship that has some correlation with what you plan to do after school. Also, make connections and do some serious networking—it's all about who and what you know.
