New Career Platform
The University Career Center has joined the Business and Engineering career centers in using Cardinal Careers powered by Symplicity. This change better serves students and employers by centralizing all opportunities under one universal career platform along with the Center for Engaged Learning.
Cardinal Careers contains all postings including full-time positions, internships, Federal Work-study, part-time jobs on and off campus, and mentored research. Additionally, it contains all career-related events including career fairs, employer information sessions, and workshops.
Students should log in immediately using their ULink credentials and complete their profiles. All students are encouraged to have their resumes reviewed by their career center. Students served by the University Career Center can use the Document Drop Program on the UCC's website. Alumni can click on the image below, then click on the red Sign-Up button to create an alumni account.
Employers and campus departments who hire students can create their accounts by following the instructions on the UCC website. Campus Departments who wish to hire Federal Work Study students should follow the instructions from the Office of Financial Aid.
The Implementation Team for Cardinal Careers consisted of members from the University Career Center, Ulmer Career Management Center in the College of Business, Speed School Engineering Career Services and Co-op, Center for Engaged Learning, UofL Information Technology Services, and Symplicity Corporation. The Implementation Team met regularly for the past eight months to achieve the January 2023 launch goal. During this time, UCC staff was busy training on the new system. Implementation team members from the four centers will continue to meet to refine policies and procedures and implement new features throughout the year.
Now that Cardinal Careers is fully functional, the old Handshake platform will close for students on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at 12:00 pm.
