Handshake aims to democratize access to opportunity by helping every college student find the right job for them, no matter where they go to school, what they're majoring in, or who they know. Built to transform the recruiting experience, Handshake connects college students and young alumni to a comprehensive national network of employers.

Student Career Advisors

Need career help but pressed on time and location? Problem solved! The official Student Career Advisor's drop-in hours are finalized and they are expanding their cover of campus.

The Student Career Advisors are happy to offer their services as career liaisons of the SEC. They review resumes, cover letters, assist with job applications, and connect you with helpful career services the SEC provides.

This year, Emma Saas '20 and Malia Brooks '20 have opened up their locations and added the Science Building STEM HUB and Jewett Cafe!

When are good times to meet with them? As soon as you can, during all stages of an application processes, in need of feedback on professional language, etc!

Emma and Malia will be at the Patisserie Downtown for a refreshing off-campus location and that's not all: both are available for 1-on-1 appointments! Email or to set one up!
