WHAT IS A CAREER COMMUNITY?

As soon as you activate your Handshake account, choose which Career Communities you want to join. Each community is based around an industry and offers unique content, such as:

  • Industry information and resources
  • Virtual connections around similar career interests
  • Alumni spotlights
  • Information about internship and full-time job opportunities

Explore multiple Career Communities and attend events across industries — you’ll develop a great network for future opportunities and learn about the wonderful career paths available to students from the College of Arts and Sciences.
