Welcome to Oxy from the Hameetman Career Center (HCC)!


Register for Workshops in August. 

Hello Incoming Tigers!

Welcome to Oxy! We are so excited for you to join us on campus in just a few weeks. The Hameetman Career Center (HCC) is Occidental College's resource for all things career preparation and internship related. We believe it's never too early to begin thinking about life after Oxy and to set yourself up for success. 

This summer we will be hosting a series of virtual workshops to get you in the career readiness mindset. The Resume Writing Workshop and Interview Preparation Workshop will each be offered three times during the first week of August. By attending these sessions you will not only gain valuable information and a head start on your Oxy journey, but you will also take a step toward becoming eligible for exclusive HCC Sponsored Programs (such as exclusive internship opportunities, unique funding and more).

Click here to register for August Workshops (You must activate your Handshake account, using your Oxy email and password, before you can register for events--more on that below).

Handshake

In addition to attending virtual workshops this summer, you can also begin exploring Handshake, Occidental's online career management platform. This is where you will make appointments with a career advisor, register for events and explore HCC resources.

You should begin by activating your Handshake account by logging in with your Oxy email and password. Once you've logged in, you can explore the platform and add any previous work or volunteer experience to your Handshake profile. A complete profile will increase your chances of being contacted by a recruiter for a job or internship opportunity. 

We hope you'll use this summer to get a jump start on your career preparedness. In addition to attending virtual workshops and exploring Handshake, you can email us at careers@oxy.edu with any questions. 

Looking forward to seeing you at next month's virtual workshops!

Sincerely,

Hameetman Career Center Staff
