The University of Alabama Career Center is pleased to announce the transition from Symplicity (CrimsonCareers) to Handshake as its job and internship portal connecting students and employers.
Students will find Handshake, online at ua.joinhandshake.com, to be user-friendly and intuitive, says Amanda Ingram, the Career Center’s director of operations. Ingram says students will enjoy the level of customization they have with their accounts, and that other institutions using Handshake praise the platform’s user experience.
“So many employers are engaged in the Handshake network that it’s really going to increase the opportunities that are being presented to our students,” Ingram said. “You’re going to be flooded with more jobs and employer connections than you’ve ever had before.”
UA’s transition to Handshake will be effective for employers on May 19, and June 22 for students. Until the student launch date, recruiters will continue to publish job and internship postings in CrimsonCareers. Employer postings and student documents housed in CrimsonCareers will expire or be purged by June 21.
