BLUE HENS FOREVER
Welcome, UD Alumni!
As a Blue Hen you can take advantage of the resources offered by the Career Center and partner with us on career preparation and engagement initiatives that benefit the career development of all UD students. We look forward to working with you.
Our free online recruiting system, Handshake, allows employers to share job and internship opportunities for UD students and alumni. Your HR department can establish an account at udel.joinhandshake.com/register
Offer a three to five-week internship during UD’s winter term, when over 60% of UD students are available for full or part-time experiences throughout the country. The experience will help to expose a student to a career area of interest and will provide you with an eager intern to assist with projects for the month.
