Job Search

Handshake_LogoWe can guide you to resources (including Handshake, our online job board) and help you develop skills for your job search. Whether you're preparing for an interview, expanding your network, or just pondering the future, we're here to assist you.

Practice Interviews

If want to prepare for an upcoming interview - or just gain experience without an actual job on the line - schedule a practice interview with us (make an appointment on Handshake). We can target your session to the type of job or graduate program for which you will be interviewing if you send details ahead of time.
