Once you have activated your account, you may use Handshake to:

  • Submit your resume and cover letters for review/critique by Career Development staff
  • Register your internship (see the detailed Internship Registration for how to do so)
  • Request Career Development appointments
  • Browse and apply for jobs and internships (including word study opportunities)
