Using Handshake and Other Job Search Tools

Helping your student connect their education to their future career
January 27, 2023

Career Services offers many tools to help your student be successful in finding and gaining experience in their field. Many times, students meet with a career counselor with a single question about their future career or internship search

The conversation grows from there into a deeper review of their interests and our career resources, technology and information.

We want to highlight the key tools we provide your student and ask for your support in sharing them.

Handshake is used by more than 200,000 employers, including Fortune 500 companies. It provides your student access to thousands of internships, jobs, networking and career information sessions and companies in one site. It also provides them with access directly to recruiters from those companies, as well as the ability to connect with their peers across the country that use the platform.
