Changes in Career Services

Sophan Sok, the Career Specialist for the College of Management has left the University for other opportunities.  We know many of you have come to know her quite well and relied on her services to advance your career or internship search process. The College of Management and the Office of Career Services and Internships want to assure you that you will still have access to high quality career development while we search for our next Career Specialist.

If you are looking for an individual career services appointment, please call 617.287.5519 to make an appointment with Cathy Larson, who will be working with CM students in the interim.

If you are looking for assistance regarding an internship, please call 617.287.5519 to make an appointment with Cathy Larson or Matt Power-Koch.

All of the previously scheduled career development MAP events will still be held, as planned, just with different staff coverage.  This will actually be a great way for you to meet other staff who can help guide your career preparations.  At this time, we have removed Focus2  as a means to earn miles in the MAP program.  Students who are uncertain about their major or field of study are still encouraged to contact career services if they would like to take this assessment and discuss their results; but MAP miles will not be awarded for this activity until further notice.

For more information about the Office of Career Services and Internships, please visit their website: www.careers.umb.edu.  Questions can be directed to careers@umb.edu, the number above, or their office on the first floor of the Career Center, in the 1300 suite.
