Is It for Me?
Handshake

Check the “Employer Preferences” section of a position in Handshake to find out if the employer is seeking undergraduate, Master's, doctorate, postdoctoral, or alumni candidates. This information will be listed under "School Years."

Campus-Wide Career Fair

Grad students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the Campus-Wide Career Fair. While a majority of the positions are entry-level, you can look up the fair page in Handshake to see which employers are recruiting graduate-level students.

On-Campus Interviews

Each semester, several of the employers coming to campus for on-campus interviews are seeking graduate students. Look under the "School Years" section of "Employer Preferences" to find out who is looking for you.
