Loyola's Career Development Center has recently ditched Employola, to the joy of many, and is moving onto the greener pastures of Handshake – the rapidly-growing online career management platform designed with college students in mind and boasting over 250,000 employers recruiting from the more than 500 schools that use it.
Handshake officially launched to the Loyola community on July 9, and students had until July 31 to retrieve any saved documents on Employola before it vanished forever, according to an email sent to students by the Career Development Center.
The center said they switched platforms in order to make finding internships and job opportunities easier for students.
“Employola wasn’t always the easiest platform to navigate— in fact, ‘wasn’t always’ really means ‘never.’ Handshake, however, looks nothing like it. You’ll find the user interface is much more intuitive, cleaner, and friendlier,” said Brent McLemore, Assistant Director of the Career Development Center, in the email.
Michael Rieber, A’18, said that he found Employola difficult to use. He applied for two internships on Employola and never heard back from either employer.
