Goodbye MOJO, Hello Handshake!

Complete your profile and start exploring!

The CCI is excited to announce the launch of Handshake, a brand new platform for Middlebury College students. Handshake is replacing MOJO and offers more job and internship opportunities, a broader range of employers, and more fields. In Handshake you can:

  • Find internship and employment opportunities based on your career interests and goals.
  • Discover when employers come to campus for informational sessions and/or interviews.
  • Connect with alumni and employers.
  • Learn about events and programming in your field of interest.
  • Schedule an advising appointment.

How do I access Handshake?
Visit middlebury.joinhandshake.com and login with your Middlebury ID and password. You already have an account – now you just need to activate it.

Note: for alumni who graduated on or before May 2016, click “sign up for an Account” on the bottom left.

What should I do first?
Completing your profile
in Handshake is more important than ever! Because Handshake is customized for your preferences, an incomplete profile means an incomplete system. It means you won’t receive tailored recommendations for opportunities, events, or employers. The CCI has migrated some of your basic information (name, graduation year, major, etc.) but you want to make sure to complete your profile, including your career interests

What do I do if some of my profile information is incorrect?
Much of your information is brought over from the Registrar’s Office. Therefore, if anything is incorrect (i.e. major, graduation date, etc.), we recommend contacting them directly at registrar@middlebury.edu

Handshake is easy-to-use and even has a mobile app. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Technology Coordinator, Susan Sheets, at ssheets@middlebury.edu.
