Career Center Rolls Out Platform for Jobs and Internships
Sept. 4, 2018
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — Illinois Wesleyan University’s Hart Career Center has recently implemented Handshake, an online career services management system that gives students a one-stop source
for jobs and internship postings, on-campus interviews, career fairs and other resources.
“Handshake offers opportunities for every student from all majors by connecting them to over 250,000 employers all across the
world,” said Hart Career Center Director Warren Kistner ’83. “Using a robust and user-friendly
interface, this platform aligns students with opportunities that will be of interest
Handshake, which has replaced Illinois Wesleyan’s former platform Titan CareerLink,
is currently used by more than 500 universities worldwide.
By building a professional Handshake profile, students can make themselves available
to peers, alumni and potential employers, and in turn, students can express interest
in specific opportunities based on type of work, location and other factors.
Illinois Wesleyan alumni are specifically invited to post their job and internship
opportunities on Handshake, helping to ensure that each and every IWU student has
a myriad of paths to lead them to success in any career.
The Hart Career Center will host Handshake Orientation, an opportunity for students
to learn how to utilize the new career services management system, on Thursday, Sept.
6 at 4 p.m. in Room 129 of The Ames Library.
