Texas's Rice University has recently swapped out its Rice Job Board for Handshake, popular national career database that helps higher education students and alumni to find jobs and internships on and off campus. However, the work-study jobs posted on the old Job Board have yet to be transferred onto Handshake.
Since its initiation in 2007, the Job Board has notified students of job openings and work-study opportunities, according to Ann Griffin, Associate Director at the Center for Career Development. Throughout the past 12 years, however, the Job Board platform has seldom been upgraded.
“It’s a bit confusing when it comes to switching from the profile to jobs page,” Nguyen said. “And it doesn’t do a great job of indicating which jobs you’ve already applied for, which leads to issues.”
Griffin said the contract with Handshake came about in part due to recognition of the issues concerning the Job Board. Now, the CCD is attempting to use their contract to transition completely to Handshake.
