Coming Soon: Handshake 

City Colleges is currently transitioning to Handshake, an online job and internship platform, to help students and alumni find meaningful careers. Handshake will allow you to create a profile showcasing your experiences, search and apply for openings from participating employers, schedule interviews, and access career resources. 

As of July 1, 2024, Career Network is no longer available. 

Find WorkBased Learning Opportunities  

Work-based learning opportunities, including apprenticeships, internships, and micro-internships, allow students to gain hands-on workplace experience with one of City Colleges’ employer partners. These experiences help students apply what they have learned in the classroom on the job and can range from a few weeks to a few years.
