You can submit information about your career endeavors, including campus involvements, internship, jobs, and other career-related experiences, past and future by updating your Handshake Profile.

Update Your Profile

What is my Handshake Profile?

Your profile in Handshake contains information that you can keep private or share with employers and fellow students about your professional experience. We also anonymously aggregate Handshake profile information about what JMU students are doing during and after their time at JMU to share with prospective students, parents, and administrators. Seniors, we especially want to hear about your plans and your first endeavors after graduation, whether that's grad school, an internship, a job, or trying to find one!

It only takes a few minutes to fill out your Handshake profile. After being prompted to log in to Handshake, you'll be taken straight to your profile to add your career-related experiences and/or plans! If you have any trouble, call 540-568-6555.

If you've had success using Handshake, the Campus-Wide Career Fair, or other Career and Academic Planning events or services, we'd love to hear that story too! Email if you have a success story or quote you'd be willing to share!

"How will JMU use this information?"

JMU wants to know about your career journey and successes, while at JMU and after you leave JMU. Your information is kept completely confidential and helps us improve ways we can support current and future students as they plan and pursue their careers. See our Career Outcomes page for how this information is shared with the JMU community, prospective students, and families.
