Missouri State University Career Center has recently announced an overhaul to their job platform for both students and alumni.
Before summer 2019, students had access to JobTracks, where students could build a profile and upload their resume for employers to view.
The Career Center is now using an “upgraded” platform called Handshake, Director of the MSU Career Center Kelly Rapp said.
Students can access Handshake through their student email account.
Handshake is a career management platform specifically tailored for students seeking jobs and internships, Director of Communications and Public Relations at Handshake Priti Khare said.
Khare said 400,000 companies, including all Fortune 500 companies, recruit early talent on Handshake, and job postings are updated in real-time.
Students don’t need an extensive professional network on Handshake to find jobs, Khare said.
Rapp said MSU decided to switch from JobTracks to Handshake because it’s more updated and will better suit students’ needs.
“It’s really built to cater to this generation of students,” Rapp said. “It’s kind of like LinkedIn, but for college students.”
