Job Opportunities & Resources

The CANR uses Handshake for all student job postings. As employers contact the CANR, they are also directed to post jobs and internships to Handshake.

Handshake is the MSU online career management tool that students can use from their freshman year through up to two years after graduation. In addition to using the job search features, students can post their resumes for employers to search potential candidates.
