Get ready for a major upgrade. Shocker Career Accelerator is moving to a brand-new jobs platform in July.

It’s pumped about the new system but doesn’t want you to miss out on all the job postings, employer-hosted virtual events and other tools you have on Handshake right now.

Head over to Handshake and update your password. This will keep your current profile active and ensure you don’t lose access to these benefits. Learn more about updating your information.

Shocker Career Accelerator has been working on the system weekly and expects to launch Shocker Central in July. Shocker Career Accelerator will inform students how the system works and provide instructions on how to set up your new profile soon.

For questions or more information, visit the Shocker Central webpage, or contact Shocker Career Accelerator at 316-978-3688 or

Stay tuned for more information.
