Appointments for Students

Our Career Services staff members are dedicated to assisting undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni with their career and professional development. We offer in-person and virtual appointments as well as weekly drop-in hours during the Fall and Spring semesters.

There are many reasons why a student might want to meet with a Career Advisor. Here are just a few:

  • Student is undeclared and unsure what career path to pursue with their major, or is considering a major change
  • Student needs help creating or updating your resume and/or a cover letter
  • Student is preparing for an interview and needs to practice
  • Student is seeking strategies to find jobs and/or internships related to their goals
  • Student has other career-related questions or concerns

Handshake for Faculty and Staff

Student View Access

Would you like to be able to see what our students and graduates see when they use Handshake? As a faculty or staff member, you can create a “Student View” Handshake account to see the jobs, internships and events available to our students in Handshake.

To sign up for a Student View account, follow these steps:

          1. Go to Handshake’s account sign up page
          2. Enter your UWW Email Address
          3. Make sure University of Wisconsin-Whitewater is listed as the school and click Continue
          4. Create a password and agree to Handshake’s Terms of Service and Privacy Policy
          5. Provide some information about yourself. When it asks for Major, Education level, Graduation Month/Year, you can either use your own or fill it out as if you’re a current student
          6. Check your UWW email to confirm your account
          7. Email us at to let us know you’ve created a Student account for yourself. Your account will be pending until we approve you.
          8. For all future logins, use Handshake.  You’ll either be able to use the Handshake password you created or your UWW NetID moving forward. 

We recommend keeping your profile hidden from employers so they do not reach out to you about job opportunities.


On-Campus Job Posting Access

If you are looking to post on-campus job opportunities for our students, you will need to create a special employer account.  Do not create a student account using the instructions above, since you won’t have the ability to post jobs with that account.

For instructions on how to create the account and post on-campus jobs, please reach out to Kim Apel at or 262-472-1472.

Interview Prep for Class Assignments

Are you looking to incorporate an interview as a class assignment in your courses?  We welcome you to use Interview Prep, a virtual resource for UWW students, to manage the assignment.  With a Faculty/Staff account, you can create mock interview assignments to help your students practice and build essential soft skills that employers are looking for.  With just a few clicks, you can create a customized virtual class assignment, selecting from thousands of interview questions that can help to enhance students' learning experiences.  Students complete the interview virtually on their own time, and you have the opportunity to view the recorded interview and grade it.

Additionally, please promote this resource to your students.  Interview Prep provides students with a platform for interview practice 24/7 and helps them build the confidence needed to leave a positive impression on employers.  Whether students prepare for internships, job opportunities, or simply want to hone their presentation and communication skills, Interview Prep offers a realistic and user-friendly environment for interview practice on their own schedule.
