    How's your Handshake?

    We offer Handshake as a way for students and alumni to connect with internship and job opportunities near and far! Gannon students have accounts already created, so just "sign in" and begin exploring. Job seekers should visit to set up their professional profiles and explore the possibilities!

    Career Exploration and Development offers additional resources and support for students to help explore possibilities and develop professionally. 

    • Explore MyPlan, a resource found through students' accounts in the My.Gannon platform. We have brief instructions for creating an account on our My.Gannon "Resources" tab so that you can access this great resource for FREE!  
    • Explore What Can I do With This Major? This resource breaks down ways in which individuals can leverage degrees and it includes helpful links to better prepare you for the next step.
