Virtual Career Management

The Temple University Career Center is available to support our students and employer partners virtually during this time of change.

Resources for Students

Head to Handshake to schedule an appointment with a Career Coach, search for internships and jobs, or connect with employers. These appointments take place via Zoom or a phone call - be mindful of the medium you choose and the instructions you receive to connect with a coach.

  • Appointments are available on a wide range of topics, ranging from creating professional documents, working on your online presence, and learning how to maximize your use of Handshake and LinkedIn. Appointments are also available to alumni within 5 years of graduation at the Career Center.
  • You may also be able to take advantage of appointments with career staff in your college or school. Log into Handshake to learn more about availability.

Handshake has compiled a list of valuable articles and resources that students can utilize in their efforts to land a job or internship while operating in a virtual environment. Ranging from networking tips, advice on how to navigate Handshake more effectively, a virtual job interview guide, and much more, Handshake's page on getting hired remotely should be one of your go-to resources.

Visit our online resources page for a variety of free resources. All of these resources continue to be available to students after graduation, some may require maintaining an active AccessNet account.
