Career Service reps offer information on Handshake


Career Services will hold an information session tomorrow, providing information on different functions of the Cat Career Tracks system, Handshake.

Representatives will be in Jamrich hall 1100 from 2 to 3 p.m. for “Career Cafe: Cat Career Tracks/Handshake” to answer questions about Handshake, a hiring and employment platform that was fully launched in December.

Not only can students search for jobs on Handshake, but they can also look at events coming up and search employers coming to job fairs, Assistant Director of Career Services Katie Korpi said.

“There’s all kinds of neat pieces to Handshake,” she said.

The Handshake system also provides a large range of employers access to Northern students, Korpi added.

“We’re really all about students and trying to connect them in different ways,” Korpi said.

About 300 students have created a profile since the system launched, she said, adding that Career Services is hoping to encourage more students to create a profile at the Career Cafe event.

“There are on campus postings and off campus postings, internships, full time and part time positions—you can tailor your search. It’s a really handy method of looking at what’s out there,” she said.
