Resources for Alumni

Handshake Jobs & Internships Database
If you are looking for a job or to make a career transition, jobs for alumni are posted in Handshake. Handshake is Rice's central job and internship board for employers to post opportunities specifically for Rice students. Handshake also houses our employer database.

Access may be granted to all alumni. To create an alumni account, please contact us.

Additionally, when recruiters contact the CCD to hire experienced Rice alumni, the CCD utilizes and recommends Sallyportal to post information on these job opportunities and how to apply. You can find more information on the Sallyportal below. The CCD also utilizes our Facebook page to post interesting opportunities and events, including opportunities for alumni with some work experience. Like us to make sure you see this information in your news feed.

Sallyportal and LinkedIn
Rice alumni and parents can connect with students and each other through LinkedIn, including the Association of Rice Alumni LinkedIn group, and Sallyportal (like LinkedIn, but dedicated to the Rice community).  Sallyportal will sync with your LinkedIn account and we encourage students to have a professional profile on both hubs.  Once you've joined Sallyportal, you can participate in discussions through the message board.  Students will use the message board and direct message tool to ask questions and network and connect with alumni and parents in their same fields of study, target industries, or companies.  Discussions can occur through the message board or direct messaging and can lead to email, phone, and in-person meetings, according to your and the students' preferences.    

Don't have a LinkedIn profile? We recommend checking out this incredible networking tool! Here is a video to help you get started.
