The Career Development Center is committed to continuing to support your career goals.

  • Postings and resources: Rutgers-Newark Handshake is a robust source for internships, jobs, volunteering, and other opportunities, as we approve new employers and postings daily. Rutgers-Newark Handshake also has many resources to help you explore your career options and prepare for opportunities. Login to see resources including Vault, InterviewStream, and Focus2 (Career Center–Resources).
  • Coaching appointments: Please schedule appointments through Rutgers-Newark Handshake.
    • For virtual appointments: when your appointment is confirmed, you will receive a calendar invite and an email which will include the link to your virtual meeting.
  • Workshops, events, and other programs: Where possible, we are offering our programs in a virtual format. All updates will be posted in the Events section of Rutgers-Newark Handshake, with virtual links provided within each event’s details.

Please note: if you are currently interning, working, or volunteering, or if you have been invited to visit an organization (for an interview, site visit, or another purpose), we encourage you to reach out to that organization for guidance regarding attendance. If you are currently receiving academic credit for your experience, please reach out to your instructor for guidance.


We encourage you to stay connected to our office, and to continue promoting your organization with our students. Rutgers-Newark Handshake can be used not only to post opportunities, but to offer virtual programs to our students. You may submit an event request through Rutgers-Newark Handshake. If you have additional questions, please reach out to us via email or phone.
