Are you contacted by employers who want to post internship and job opportunities? The Career Center launched Handshake as the centralized internship and job posting system for University of Portland students and alumni, which democratizes access and provides students and alumni with an opportunity to connect with over 200,000 employers locally and nationally.
The Career Center has become aware that organizations (i.e. Frog Tutoring, Environment America, Teach for America, etc.) are directly contacting faculty and staff and requesting that they forward opportunities via email to students. Please direct ALL internship and job opportunities to the Career Center rather than forwarding to students. Unfortunately there are many employment scams targeted at college students. The Career Center can screen these requests and then follow up with employers to get them posted. All requests should be emailed to the Career Center at email@example.com. All students can access Handshake through single sign-on. Questions? Contact Amy Cavanaugh, Career Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
