Career Matters

Next Steps for Graduating Seniors…

DON’T HAVE A JOB YET?  Career Services is available for all alumni at no charge. We can help you with your resume, full-time job leads and graduate school information.

DO YOU HANDSHAKE?  Handshake allows you to look for all types of positions, in the Bay Area and worldwide. You already have an account, you just need to log in to get started if you’ve not already done so! To access Handshake, just visit: http://handshake.menlo.edu. If you have any trouble accessing or using Handshake, please let us know.  Also, let us know if anything in your profile needs to be updated that you’re not able to change.

JOIN LINKEDIN?  If you have not already registered on LinkedIn and joined the Menlo College Alumni Association, you will want to do so soon. It’s a great way to keep up with friends, establish professional networks, and look for resources and jobs.

INTERNSHIPS?  Internships may be available for recent graduates. If you’re interested, visit the Career Center or look for opportunities on Handshake.

TRANSFERRING CREDITS?  If you’re finishing up credits at another school, let your Academic Advisor know before you leave campus. They will confirm that the units are transferable and will count towards your graduation.

DON’T MISREPRESENT YOURSELF!  If you are walking at Commencement with units (including classroom courses and/or an internship) still to complete over the summer, your graduation date on your resume and LinkedIn profile should not state the month of May. Potential employers conducting pre-employment checks may contact Menlo College or any previous school or employer you’ve listed on your resume or application, so be sure that the start and end dates for each match what will be verified if your previous schools or employers are contacted. If you’re finishing up requirements over the summer your graduation date will be August (or whenever you do complete your work). Verify the exact degree title and major on your transcript or diploma as you update your resume and LinkedIn profile.

TELL US WHAT YOU’RE UP TO! You will be asked to complete the First Destination Survey prior to graduation. The data you report on this survey is critical to us being able to answer common questions about employment statistics, starting pay rates, etc… Individual surveys are kept confidential and results will only be presented in compiled format and never with names attached to specific, individually identifiable data.
