New Job Posting Platform - Cardinal Careers

Cardinal Careers Powered by Symplicity

The University Career Center is excited to announce our transition from Handshake to Cardinal Careers powered by Symplicity. As a part of the University's strategic plan, this change will serve students and employers by uniting all opportunities under one universal career platform with the Center for Engaged Learning and the University, Business, and Engineering career centers. Utilizing Cardinal Careers will be your way to post all employment opportunities, view and register for all UofL fairs, and reach all UofL students.

Positions Posted:

The following are posted in Cardinal Careers by the UCC:

  1. Internship/Co-op – employer supervised positions preparing students for a professional career track.
  2. Degreed Full-time - career-related positions requiring a minimum of a bachelors degree.
  3. Student Employment (part-time jobs/full-time in summer) - for currently enrolled students to help offset educational and living expenses. The objective is to connect students with employers who offer part-time jobs that are flexible and can accommodate students’ class schedules. These positions are limited to Jefferson, Oldham, Bullitt, and Shelby counties in Kentucky and Floyd and Clark counties in Indiana. Temporary summer jobs can be full-time. 
  4. Federal Work-Study - these positions are posted in Cardinal Careers by the Financial Aid Office. Employers and Campus Departments cannot post these positions.  

Please review our Posting Policy for additional information.  


Employers should create their accounts immediately in Cardinal Careers, post jobs, and register for spring career fairs.  The University Career Center is no longer accepting new employer accounts, jobs, or career fair registrations through Handshake.
