The Career Lab aims to help students and alumni discover employment possibilities that best fit their knowledge, skills, and passion. The pandemic has given us an opportunity to reflect on the best ways to engage students.

The Career Lab continues to follow Johns Hopkins University guidance to maintain the safety and well-being of our students and staff during the 2021-2022 academic year and will continue to host all employer events virtually.

If you are hosting a talent engagement event that you would like our students to be aware of, or if you want to collaborate with JHSON to host a virtual event- please complete this form and our team will contact you within two business days.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can pre-licensure students participate in part-time positions or summer externships?
    Our pre-licensure program is 5 semesters with no long breaks/no summers off. Due to their full class/clinical load, students who choose to work typically take on a few evening or weekend shifts per month.
  • How can I share my job opportunities with students?
    The best way to get the word out about your job is through our online job board, Handshake, which is open to all JHU students and alumni. This platform is part of a national system of colleges/universities, so you can post the job/event once and target any university in the system, rather than posting school by school.

    Handshake is completely free to use.

    You may sign up for a free employer account. When your user account and employer profile are created, you should request a connection with Johns Hopkins University. For detailed instructions on each part of this process, please check out this helpful article. After completing the steps above, our team will review your connection request. Once approved, you can post jobs and events– again, not just at Johns Hopkins, but at hundreds of other colleges and universities nationwide.

  • Do you host a Career Fair?
    We most commonly host employers in winter or spring due to the majority of our students graduating in May and August. We are well equipped to host employers from all regions virtually, and are happy to chat with you see to see if a session is a good fit. Please complete this form or email us at
