Handshake

Internships has transitioned to a new platform called Handshake. This tool is built to function very similar to LinkedIn and Facebook and will offer you easier access to internships, volunteer, research and job opportunities. 

Students can now easily complete their Experiential Learning Agreement and search and apply for internships, volunteer, research or job opportunities. 

Employers can easily post internships, volunteer, research and job opportunities as well as schedule on-campus interviews and information sessions.
