What is a Career Interest Community?

Career Interest communities, available from the “Explore Career Interests” menu of the site, allow you to connect with career field-specific alumni, information, and resources to explore your professional interests and connect to meaningful opportunities. We encourage you to follow any of the career interest communities that align with your professional goals, interests or curiosities, and plans. You will receive customized information from a particular community, by clicking “Follow this Community,” then signing up and updating your preferences. We encourage you to update the “Your Interests” section of your Handshake profile as well.

Here are just a few of the benefits of following a Career Interest communities:

  • Curated jobs, internships, research and volunteer opportunities
  • Targeted announcements of professional development opportunities, events and career fairs
  • Featured blog posts with tips from career advisors, alumni and student success stories, insider information from employers and other helpful resources
  • Recommended tools for exploring careers, networking, researching employers, searching for internships and jobs, and more
