Handshake is now the premier hub at Skidmore for finding jobs and internships that match your interests.
By logging in and updating your profile, you will receive customized job and internship opportunities that directly match the interests you specify. Once you complete your profile, you can make it public so employers can find you. This is also where you can see and register for all of the events the CDC offers and receive reminders. Additionally, Handshake has the capability to schedule an appointment with a career counselor at your convenience.
