JOB & RESOURCE platform

Handshake is a new platform launching August 6, 2018 that can be used to schedule career counseling appointments, register for events, access online resources, and apply for jobs. All current students, and alumni who have graduated since 2014, will automatically receive an account, so watch for an email on August 6 about how to get started. Please do not try to access Handshake before then, as we are still building the platform for your use. Alumni who graduated prior to 2014 can request a free account starting August 6.
