  • Rutgers-Newark Handshake

    • Rutgers-Newark Handshake is the Career Development Center’s platform for sharing opportunities, resources, events, and other information with students. With Rutgers-Newark Handshake, students can:
      ► Discover career opportunities across hundreds of companies
      ► Access personalized internship and job recommendations based on major and interests
      ► Ask for advice from other students across the country who got great jobs (peer-to-peer features—reviews, Q & A, messaging)
      ► Share their student profile (employers can proactively contact students with public profiles; students with complete profiles are 5X more likely to be messaged by employers)
      The CDC has also posted career-related events and career resources within Rutgers-Newark Handshake. If you have an on-campus job you would like to share with students, you can post it in Rutgers-Newark Handshake: On-Campus Job Posting Instructions
