Provide Students with World-Class Career Support

One of the most important things a university can do is to offer lifetime career services for its students and alumni. At Chapman, we are committed to providing best-in-class resources that will prepare our students to enter the job market. Career preparedness starts in the classroom. Please consider including a Career and Professional Development component to your class. We can provide:

+ - Customized Career-Related Assignments and Activities

We will collaborate with you to customize any career-related activity or assignment. Reach out to our Career Education team to start the conversation.

+ - Career Coaching and Job Search Tools

One of the most impactful experiences a student will have at Chapman is receiving guidance from a faculty member. In addition to benefiting from your advice, students also have access to career coaching, networking opportunities and a private Chapman job board, Handshake. Please encourage your students to log into Handshake and meet with a Career Educator to maximize their search efforts.

If you would like assistance setting up a Handshake account, please reach out to our front desk operations team.
