Career Services

Our Career Resource Center works with undergraduate and graduate students and alumni on career exploration and decision-making, job search strategies, effective self-promotion, and work issues. We can help you with questions about choosing a major, job opportunities related to a specific program or major, recommendations, interviewing, and graduate school applications.


To set up a career coaching appointment, go to Handshake using your Lesley username and password. After responding to the profile questions, click on “Career Center” from your Handshake home page, and then click on “Appointments.” You can select “Phone Call” or “Video Call” via Zoom.  

If you graduated in 2018 or before, go to Handshake and click on "Sign up here" in the upper right. Lesley graduates can use their Lesley or personal email address.

Alumni who graduated from Lesley more than one year ago are limited to three appointments per year (July 1 to June 30).


We have a new job listing platform, Handshake, to search job openings and connect to potential opportunities.
