Announcement and Invitation

New Career Platform

Great News! Marshall University has partnered with Handshake – a modern career development platform – to replace our current JobTrax system and be your one-stop-shop for launching your career.

Handshake offers new features, enabling you to:

  • Access personalized job recommendations based on your major and interests
  • Register for career-related events (Career Expos, Job-A-Palooza, etc.)
  • Manage on-campus interviews with top companies
  • Schedule appointments with your career coaches

The Office of Career Education will preload your profile and you will be able to access your Handshake account beginning on June 1, 2020.

Here’s what you need to do before June 1

If you currently have documents (resumes, cover letters, etc.) in your JobTrax profile, please log in and save them to your device or OneDrive. Once you have saved your documents you are welcome to delete them from JobTrax and save them to your Handshake profile. Due to the volume of students in the system, we will not be able to transition documents to Handshake.
