Great News! Mercy College has partnered with Handshake – a modern career development platform – to replace Career Maverick and be your one-stop-shop for launching your career.

This modern internship and job board offers a significantly improved user experience and functionality:

  • Intuitive user interface. Handshake is easy to use!
  • Personalized opportunities. You can curate your experience so Handshake sends you customized opportunities based on your major and career interests, preferences, and activities.
  • Increased number of opportunities. You will have a significantly expanded set of jobs and internships posted by over 300,000 employers to which they may apply.
  • Employers eager to connect. If you fill out your profile and make it public, you are 5X as likely to be messaged directly by the increased network of employers.
  • Company reviews. Students and alumni from over 700 colleges and universities provide reviews on over 300,000 companies, so you have easy access to more information on organizations and jobs.
  • Easy appointment requests and RSVP for Career Events
