San Diego State students have a new, updated way to try and digitally explore their career and internship options, as Career Services has just finalized its transition to a new job connection solution.

The new platform, Handshake, has replaced the previous platform, Aztec Career Connection, offering students a vast list of new features.

Associate Director of Employer Services Chris Turntine said the new platform would enable peer mentorship for students with similar career interests.

“It allows students to connect with other students and have a conversation with them about their career goals or how they got a certain internship,” Turntine said. “It allows (students) to create a public profile which then allows employers to reach out directly to students.”

Turntine said Handshake is a modern version of the old platform.

“We were looking for something that had more modern technology,” Turntine said. “(Handshake) was really something that a lot of universities are moving towards because it was a better product, particularly in the way it discovers a lot about the interests of our students in terms of their career goals and really creates a customized experience.”
