The University of Wisconsin Whitewater has taken new steps to ensure that its graduates can find their footing in the professional work world.
The Career and Leadership Development office (CLD), located in UC-146, offers four key services for students. Such services include centralized career development, opportunities for students to engage in leadership on campus, cultural support for students through the Warhawk Connection Center including the PB Poorman PRIDE Center and providing outreach services to employers. These services allow CLD to meet talent needs with graduates. These are all primarily self-help based services that students can access whenever needed. One of these services is called Handshake.
UW-W started using the service Handshake in March 2018. It is an online platform that UW-W, among hundreds of other schools, uses to assist students and alumni with career and internship searches. Handshake is most commonly used as a job posting board, with approximately 12,000 employers posting available internships and full-time and part-time jobs on it daily. Campus departments can also share on-campus jobs for students on the website and app. Currently, over 53,000 opportunities have been posted on the platform.
CLD also has dedicated on-campus staff career advisers who can meet one-on-one with students to discuss strategies for their future employment such as developing professional resumes and LinkedIn profiles.
