Handshake’s database of job, internship and volunteer opportunities available to all students and alumni. Log-in to create an account and post your position. You’ll receive a notification when it has been approved.
Come to campus to speak with and learn about our students in person. For-profit companies can contact Michelle Flint, Director of Career Development for the LEEP Center, and nonprofit organizations can contact Micki Davis, Director of community engagement. On-campus options include:
- Information sessions: Describe your organization and the employment or internship opportunities available.
- Tabling: Advertise your organization and positions by staffing a table in Clark’s Higgins University Center, which is where students eat, pick up mail and socialize.
- On-campus interviews: Conduct first-round interviews on campus. We’ll post your opportunity to the Handshake Job Portal and collect resumes. You may decide to interview all candidates or select the most qualified.
The Career Services office sponsors job and internship fairs in the fall and spring semesters. More than 300 students attend these events to speak with employers from for-profit, not-for-profit, government, and service organizations.
Held annually in the fall, this fair, which is sponsored by the Community Engagement Office, includes local community partners and employers who offer volunteer and internship positions to students. Participating organizations include the American Red Cross, the Boys and Girls Club, EcoTarium, Habitat for Humanity, Pathways for Change, UMass Memorial and the YWCA. Contact Micki Davis for more information.
- If you’re looking for student volunteers, you can also complete the Community Partner request form and a staff member will follow up with you on the opportunity.
Our faculty have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. If you have a community project you believe would be a good fit for faculty or community-based learning courses, contact Micki Davis. Also, faculty and student research in the Worcester community are archived in the Local Knowledge Database. If you’re looking for faculty and/or student support on a research project, contact Micki Davis.
