Career Advising and Professional Development uses Handshake as our career management system, a tool for scheduling appointments with us and managing campus interviews, off-campus recruiting, job-search information, and event registration. CAPD offers two options for academic and administrative departments to have access to MIT’s Handshake.
Option 1. Access Handshake as a Student or Postdoc
If you, or a colleague in your department or office, would like to access Handshake as a student, please let us know by completing the Handshake access form. Once an account is created for you, you will receive an email with added details to help you use Handshake. Having a student account allows you to see what internship and full time job opportunities are available to students in your departments
Option 2: Create your Department/Program Career Center
This option is a bit more in-depth for departments looking to post their career exploration related events in Handshake or organize department specific career development opportunities or resources for their students. If your department or program would like to explore having their own Career Center in Handshake, please complete the Handshake Interest Form. A CAPD team member will reach out to discuss this option and create your Career Center.
