Schedule Appointments & Sign up for Pre-Health Updates - Handshake is Here!

The Career Center has been talking about it for what seems like months, but it's finally here.
You can now access your Handshake account and start using this new and swanky system to schedule your appointments and receive Pre-Health updates!

Enough talk. Time for action. How do I access my new best friend, Handshake?

You can access Handshake via the Career Center website or by going to

1. When you log in, you will be prompted to complete your profile. This is very important! Because Handshake is customized to your preferences, an incomplete profile means an incomplete system. It means you won't receive tailored recommendations and your searches might be incomplete.

*When asked to indicate your career interests, make sure to select the Pre-Health option in order to receive the Pre-Health Pulse newsletter and other relevant updates. 

2. You can schedule appointments. Just as in CAVLink, you will be able to book appointments online (some exclusions apply - alumni & mock interviews). You can also always call our office at 434-924-8900 during business hours (Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm) to make an appointment. 

The Career Center is open during the summer and we are taking appointments. You can schedule pre-health appointments via Handshake or by phone now.

For additional information and guidelines regarding your profile setup, job and internship searches, and more - check out this Career Center Blog Post. 

Happy Handshaking!
