    Handshake for UMES Students

    The Career & Professional Development Center is excited to offer you a premier college career recruiting network system of the future. This system was built to transform the recruiting experience for you, while assisting with identifying employment and/or internships related to your major. This is implemented by connecting students and University alumni to a comprehensive national network of employers, all built on a fast, scalable, mobile infrastructure. Handshake network gives students access to more career opportunities and insights, provides employers with more comprehensive and efficient access to talent, and provides colleges more tools to drive student engagement and increase student employment.  When you optimize your Handshake profile, it means making your profile work for you! When you add relevant and important details about you and your career interests two things happen:

    1. Handshake will recommend jobs, internships, or events based on your career interests and activity.
    2. Employers can find you.

    Handshake does most of the work for you! But first you have to do some work up front.

    A complete profile allows you to present a complete picture of who you are as a student and professional.

    Start developing your Handshake Profile to expose recruiters to your skills, experiences, achievement and successes!
