Career Development Office Helps Online Job Search

The Career Development Office will be busy this semester working with students to help them in their online job search. From mock interviews with Dominican alumni, daily opportunities to work with career development assistants to develop Handshake accounts, and one-on-one resume reviews, the office is ready to support, encourage, and advise students.

“The job search landscape has changed dramatically, but employers are still hiring and looking for new graduates,” says Stacy Davidson, director of the Career Development Office and lead integrative coach. “It’s even more important now for students to engage with employers online. We are here to encourage students and provide the resources they need to be successful.”

Handshake Profile Pop-Ups

The office will work with students remotely (Zoom, Hangout) on ways to jumpstart the job search by creating a Handshake account and profile. A career development assistant will work with students to develop a profile and search for available jobs.

Handshake “Ask Me Anything”

Weekdays through April 17, students can access the latest career advice during Handshake’s daily “Ask Me Anything” sessions for students. Any student who has created a Handshake account has access to the hour-long sessions that will take place at noon PST/3 p.m. EST. Once a student logs in to the session, they can use the “raise hand” functionality in Zoom to ask questions. There’s no limit to how many sessions a student can attend.
