Chances are that upon your new or returning arrival to Hofstra, you will be greeted by new and old friends alike. Whether it is with a hug, a high five, or a handshake, the message is the same, Welcome!
The Career Center at Hofstra is welcoming you on board with our own version of a “handshake”. This is our application that serves as your home base for jobs and internship postings, company contacts, event listings and more. It allows Hofstra students to have exclusive access to job postings that are specifically chosen based on interests you indicate in your profile. The system is accessible using your pre-existing Hofstra login information through the Hofstra Career Hub. Handshake provides the opportunity to engage with employers looking for students just like you!
For those returning students who may have already been familiar with Handshake, the latest reinvention of the platform is much like your new hairstyle or dorm room décor: similar, yet refreshed. They also have rolled out an iOS application for your iPhone so while you are waiting in line in the Student Center for lunch or trying to kill some time before class starts, download the app and get to scrolling! Hopefully, the new Handshake will be more than just a welcoming “hello” but a helping hand in increasing your opportunities for success this new academic year.
If you did not get enough “Handshaking” out of this post and want to learn more about the Career Center, don’t hesitate to reach out! Give us a call at (516) 463-6060 or stop by M. Robert Lowe Hall to set up an appointment. Don’t mind the construction and go behind C.V. Starr and the Monroe Lecture Center if you are looking for us!
