Appointments and Advising
Handshake (formerly iCareers) is the Information School’s main online platform for iSchool students and alumni to find current internship and job positions, schedule advising appointments, and sign up for Career Services workshops and events. All newly admitted iSchool students will be enrolled and gain access to Handshake by early September, or by the first week of your starting quarter.

Summer 2021: Drop-ins are not currently being offered. Please make an appointment via Handshake.
Drop-in hours take place online via Zoom. Log in to Handshake to access Zoom links. Students are invited to bring any questions or topics you would like to cover with an advisor!
Drop-in conversations generally range from 5 to 15 minutes. Depending on your needs, you may be encouraged to schedule a follow-up appointment. The Zoom waiting room feature is enabled to ensure individual privacy.
If time zones, work schedule conflicts, or other needs prevent you from scheduling an appointment during any of the available slots on Handshake, please email iCareers@uw.edu and an advisor will work with you to schedule an alternative or evening appointment time.
