Before you begin your job search, you should understand your role in the job search process.
It is highly recommended that most students utilize UGA’s job board – Handshake – as their primary resource when searching for jobs, part-time work, or internships. Handshake is accessed online through the UGA Career Center home page. To access the database, simply login using your UGA MyID and password.
There are a variety of other online job boards that may also serve as a helpful resource for job seekers. However, it is important to remember that many of the most popular job boards are heavily utilized and may increase the amount of competition you face in the application process. A good strategy is to seek out job boards that are more specific to your industry or professional interests. For example, seek out job boards operated by local, state, and national professional organizations or postings that are specific to one company or geographic region.
