Summer '18 transition to Handshake

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 - 6:24pm



University of Iowa Pomerantz Career Center has partnered with Handshake - a career development software platform -
to replace our current system powering This new system will be your one-stop-shop for launching your career. (powered by Handshake) will offer improved features, enabling you to:

  • Access personalized job recommendations based on your major and interests

  • Set up your profile directly from your resume content

  • Manage on-campus interviews with top companies - even by your mobile device!

Best of all, it is very user-friendly!

Pomerantz Career Center will pre-load parts of your profile and you will be able to access your
(powered by Handshake) account, beginning in June.

Stay tuned for an email invitation in June to access your new powered by Handshake account!

We are excited about this transition and hope that it will provide you with an improved experience! Let us know if you have any questions!
