Westfield State University Career Center - Recruiting Platform Transition

We are excited to announce that effective January 2018, the Career Center will transition to a new recruiting platform, Handshake. 

Handshake enables recruiters to only need one log-in to post with over 400 schools and reach over 8,000,000 students- simplifying the job posting process.  Handshake also features a powerful applicant filtering tool that will allow you to search and narrow down potential hires as well as direct message students.  This service is absolutely free for employers and is simple to navigate. 

We will disable our current system, Career Connections (GradLeaders) on Friday, December 22nd as we finalize the transition process.  Should you have any positions to post, you will be able to access Handshake in January (an invitation email will be sent to you).  Due to the large number of positions currently in Career Connections, we won't be able to enter each posting into Handshake and will request that you add it to our system in January.

If you have any questions, please give us a call (413-572-5206) or email  The Career Center values the relationships we have established with our recruiting partners, and will continue to be available to you in person, by phone and email for any questions or concerns with the transition process.  Thank you again for your commitment to the Westfield State University Career Center.

We look forward to continuing to work with you!
