Resources

The Center for Career Excellence has many resources available to assist students with their career exploration and preparation. The majority, although not all, may be found within our Handshake career management platform. These include resources to assist with internship/job search, document creation/refinement, interview preparation, graduate/professional school information, as well as our programs and events.  

  • CareerShift is a great internship/job search tool. Search, select, and store job listings from all job boards and all company job postings; get up-to-date contact information, including e-mail addresses, for hundreds of companies; and access in-depth information about the contacts and companies posting the jobs.
