The Temple University Career Center provides students with the tools and guidance for them to explore their career options, build their professional brand, gain experience, and make their path into life after Temple.
Helping Your Student Develop Professionally
We work directly with your student to equip them with the knowledge and confidence to direct their own career success. When they make a coaching appointment or stop by for a drop-in session, they will work with our career coaches to identify their goals and develop tangible action steps to reach them.
Our professional development services also include:
Your student has access to a much larger Career Network across campus. Our Career Coaches collaborate closely with network partners in specific schools/colleges to coordinate tailored professional development experiences.
Connecting Your Student to Opportunities
Handshake — Temple’s online job and internship portal — democratizes opportunities for students at Temple and exposes them to job/internship postings from over 200,000 employers nationwide. Through Handshake students also receive targeted information about events, organizations, and job/internship opportunities throughout the year.
We maintain an online presence on all relevant social media channels to keep students informed of trends, job/internship opportunities, and career advice and stories from a world of sources, including their fellow Temple students and alumni.
For the 2019–20 academic year, we hosted 100+ employer engagement events on campus, including job and internship fairs, networking and professional development events, and on-campus interviews, allowing students to connect directly with employers and industry experts.
