LVC Handshake:: (previously JobCenter)

June 2016: The Center for Career Development is excited to announce our partnership with Handshake, the ultimate career network for students. As of July 1, 2016, Handshake will replace JobCenter to become your one-stop-shop for launching your career.

Handshake offers many exciting new features, including:

  •       Personalized job recommendations based on your major and interests
  •      An easy way to register for and attend career fairs
  •       Managing your on-campus interviews with top companies
  •       Scheduling appointments with your career counselors      

Alumni in class years 2012-present will be transitioned into the new system automatically. We will preload your profile and you will be able to access your Handshake account in July. To learn how Handshake can help you find your dream job, visit Join Handshake. For alumni who graduated in 2011 and earlier, please contact career-development@lvc.edu and we will assist you in preparing an account on Handshake. You can also visit Join Handshake after July 1, 2016, to register for a new account on your own. 

Stay tuned for an email invitation to access your new Handshake account!
