Handshake is a system on campus that makes it easy for UW-Madison students to sign up for career events, connect to jobs and internships, and use online resources to explore careers.
Spring 2020 workshops & events will be offered virtually or have been canceled. You can also schedule a remote appointment with a CEC advisor to talk about career paths, majors, and how majors and careers connect.
There are a variety of ways beyond individual appointments that students can interact with the CEC to help further their major and career exploration.
At CCAS & the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
