On June 15th we will be transitioning from TommieCareers to Handshake for our services. Students will begin the transition on May 3rd, and must save/transfer any documents (resumes, cover letters, transcripts, etc.) they need from their TommieCareers accounts. On June 15th, those documents will no longer be accessible.
