Career Resources

Alumni can use Handshake, an online career management system, to post resumes, search for jobs, and register for career fairs and workshops. The Marianne Able Career Services Center on the East Falls Campus provides many resources and services for Philadelphia University alumni. The Career Development Center on the Center City Campus serves alumni of the Jefferson College of Life Sciences and the Jefferson Colleges of Health Professions, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Population Health. Our Centers on both campuses can assist alumni employers with their hiring needs, including participation in on-campus career fairs, job-posting services, and other recruiting efforts.
