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.

The new topics are:

  • Environmental Science & SustainabilityThere are many jobs in the environmental and sustainability fields beyond policy work. Within the private sector, there are opportunities in the timber industry, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation organizations. Within the government, there is work available at the local, state and federal levels that focus on forests, water, and wildlife.
  • NeuroscienceThe “Brain Sciences,” or neuroscience, encompass a wide range of career paths centralized in the research and medical professions, and now permeating across multiple new fields in recent years. Through studying the brain and the nervous system, those who choose a career in neuroscience seek to understand how neurons interact and how these interactions impact behavior. Neuroscience intersects psychology, science, medicine, and impacts the legal system, education, and even marketing. Clearly, neuroscience presents multiple pathways for you to consider.
  • Law & ParalegalThe law profession encompasses a variety of career fields some of which require an advanced degree where others do not. Those interested in the field of law typically pursue careers as lawyers, paralegals/legal assistants, criminal justice (law enforcement, probation officers, and correction officers), social work/justice (family law, juvenile law, elder law and child protective services), public policy, federal government, protective services, detective services and more.
  • Business Intelligence, Analytics & Data ScienceEvery time a customer interacts with a computerized system, whether at a Grocery Store, Online Store, or Social Media site, data is created and stored in a data solution system. Tools then convert this data into metrics (known as analytics) that assess consumer behavior. Analytic professionals interpret analytical data and utilize statistics, predictive modeling, and managerial strategies to drive business decisions. Analytics are used in nearly every industry. Marketing companies use analytics to measure and analyze performance of different initiatives, financial firms use analytics to analyze investments and forecast future scenarios, charter schools use analytical data to inform teaching practices, and major movie studios use analytics to project ticket sales.
