Once registered, employers will be able to register for CCPD events, post internships, jobs, and connect with students on a regular basis.
The Center for Career and Professional Development at Whittier College aims to generate career-developing job opportunities for Whittier College students and alumni. As a service to the Whittier College community, our office offers employers the chance to list job opportunities on Handshake – our information management platform for job listings. The Career Center team acts as a connection between employers and the Whittier community. While our office will expose unethical employers and job scams we become aware of, students and alumni have the responsibility for researching and verifying the integrity of the organizations to which they are applying. For tips on how to ascertain unethical employers/job scams, see the Federal Trade Commission video about job scams and review the list of Common Job Scams. Whittier College and the Career Center make no representations or guarantees about the job listings and positions posted on the Whittier College Handshake system. Whittier College is not responsible for determining the legitimacy of any job listing nor is it responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment. Please contact our team at CareerCenter@whittier.edu with any questions.
