Looking for JobMate?

In June of 2016 The University of South Carolina Career Center said Goodbye to JobMate and Hello to Handshake - our new state-of-the-art career management platform!

All current University of South Carolina- Columbia students automatically have a Handshake account with profile data imported directly from the Registrar's office. These students simply need to sign in to Handshake to activate the account.

Alumni will need to request an account from the Career Center and be approved for access.

See Creating a Handshake Account for details on getting started!

For questions about this transition, call the Career Center at 803-777-7280.
