This week, we celebrated the end to another fantastic year here in Central Career Services. Although we all work hard in this office to service the UMass Amherst community, we wouldn’t be able to function without our amazing undergrad student employees. This year, we honor our incredible seniors.
Alice Kazberouk is a Biology senior on the Pre-Med track, and has been a Peer Advisor at CCS since her freshman year! After graduation, she will be returning to the Boston area to work as a Patient Care Technician at Beth Israel.
Jaeli Graham is a Sociology and Spanish double major, and has been a Peer Advisor with us for two years. She is also heading back to the Boston area to serve the community with CityYear!
And last but not least, Davis Rioux has been a dedicated front desk representative for CCS for four years now, and majors in Psychology. After graduation, he is moving to Sunderland with his best friends, and hopes to be working in clinical/scientific psychological practice somewhere in the Valley.
Congratulations to our seniors and the Class of 2019! We can’t wait to see what you do next!

What Are Your Weaknesses? - Sample Answer

Sometimes in interviews, we're forced to answer questions that are difficult to answer positively at all! For example, almost every interview asks the question "Tell me some of your weaknesses." While some have said that it's a good idea to give a backhanded compliment, it's better to speak to your weaknesses and talk about how you address these issues, or how you're growing to overcome them! Check out this example from Big Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxKTOcQv5l0
