The Lazarus Center has incorporated Design Thinking into our work with students. Design is the process of intentionally making something that does not yet exist. Design thinking gives you the confidence and agency to build a future plan that makes sense for you.
We offer appointments for alumnae who have graduated within the past 5 years. Call 413-585-2582 or register for Handshake and schedule an appointment there.
Alumnae who are more than 5 years out: The Office of Alumnae Relations' Career Resources include webinars, networking events, business network, CareerBeam, PDF guides, salary negotiation, LinkedIn for alumnae, info for alumnae employers, and other suggested reading.

Peer advisers receive extensive training and staff the majority of our drop-ins.
Peer advisers are your resource for:
- Resume and cover letter help — Whether you're writing your first resume or improving your existing resume and cover letters, peer advisers offer knowledgeable advice and resources to help you get results. They can help you tailor your documents to employers' needs and expectations by assisting with wording, organization and style.
- Job and internship searches — Peer advisers can guide you through the many resources available for your internship or job search, no matter what the field.
- Business cards — We offer free business cards during drop-in hours. Work with a peer adviser to design business cards from one of our templates. One sheet of business cards (10 cards) are allowed per student per year. For more design options or to order larger batches of business cards, we suggest Paradise Copies in Northampton or online services such as vistaprint.com or moo.com.
Peer advisers also assist visitors in the Lazarus Center’s Resource Library, manage the Suit Yourself Program, and support workshops and other events.
