Handshake to replace Wildcat Careers

Wildcat Careers moving to a new platform in June 2018!

Wildcat Careers will be moving in June 2018! The University of New Hampshire has joined Handshake to host job and internship opportunities for all students. This new site will be incredibly user-friendly for students, employers, faculty, staff, and the entire UNH community to connect students and recent alumni with employment opportunities locally and across the world.

Wildcat Careers, as is currently available, will be fully operational throughout the month of May and into the beginning of June. Students will be notified via email when the new platform is fully launched. To log in, click the button below. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to improve this service to orchestrate opportunities for all Wildcats!
