Activate your Handshake Account!

We hope you had a great summer and are re-energized for the new semester!

If you have not already done so, Career Development recommends activating your Handshake account. Not only can you search for and apply to internships and work study positions, but you can submit your resume for critique, connect with other students who have made their accounts community-viewable, and schedule Career Development appointments.

You already have an account, which can be accessed by visiting the Handshake website here, clicking on the blue MCAD Account Login button, then entering your regular MCAD credentials.

Detailed directions for submitting an internship via this new platform may be found on the Career Development intranet page under Internship Registration Information.

If you already have an internship in progress, you may view the details by logging in according to the above directions, clicking on the Career Services tab in the upper right hand corner, selecting Experiences, and then clicking on View Details for the internship in question.

Interns will no longer be responsible for emailing evaluations to their site supervisors; all site and student evals may be completed by clicking on a link within an email sent by the Handshake system on the mid point and end date of the internship. The previously utilized SurveyMonkey evaluation links may no longer be used.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to Career Development with any questions regarding Handshake!
