UMass/Isenberg will not host any on-campus interviews during the 2020-2021 academic year - all interviews will take place virtually.
Students are encouraged to regularly access both IsenbergWorks AND Handshaketo apply for jobs, internships, and virtual interviews.
Interview processes and virtual connection instructions will vary by firm, so be sure to monitor your email for specific details. For example, in some cases, the employer will schedule the interview slots on their end, while in others, Chase will handle interview scheduling via IsenbergWorks. However, in every case, the employer will make virtual connection arrangements on their end and communicate those arrangements to interview candidates.
Also note that UMass Career Services and the Chase Career Center are encouraging employers to utilize technological and phone methods to interview job candidates in place of in-person office interviews until Covid19 safety precautions are lifted. This recommendation is in accordance with The UMass Amherst Community Safety Agreement for Students, which supports limiting off-campus travel as much as possible.
Please contact Melissa Salva, Director of Employer Engagement, with any questions about the interview process.
