Referring Interns to College of Education Career Services

  • Appointments with a College of Education career advisor can be made by logging in to MSU’s Handshake system
  • Appointments can be in person, over the phone, or via Zoom conferencing
  • Appropriate career advising topics include: job search strategies, interviewing techniques, professional networking and communication, document or portfolio reviews, and career fair preparation
  • For a scheduled appointment time outside of what is available on Handshake, interns can reach out to their college career consultant directly at to set up a reasonable time to meet
  • Professional documents (resumes & cover letters) can be sent to for review instead of making an advising appointment – expect at least a 2-3 business day turnaround
