Update Your Career Interests

Update your career interests and make sure you’re staying up to date with the UVA Career Center! When you fill out your career interests in Handshake, it not only helps the algorithm know which jobs and events to suggest for you, but it also helps to make sure that you’re on the list for all of the programs and opportunities that we host in the Career Center.

Here’s how to do it:

When you are logged into Handshake, click on your profile in the top right corner, and then click on “My Career Interests”

Career Interests

Next, you will fill out all of the sections on the Career Interests page where it will look like this.


Don’t worry if you’re unsure, you can go back and change it at any time!

In order to sign up for the UVA Career Center newsletters based on the career community of your interest, scroll down until you see the following where you will click on your preferred industry areas.

If you have any questions, please make an appointment with a career counselor via Handshake so that we can talk about your interests and explore your options!
