Jobs for Matadors to be powered by Handshake

Free profile photoshoot events offered in Yuma and La Paz counties

Yuma, AZ (March 30, 2021) – Starting April 1, Arizona Western College’s Career Services department is launching a new and improved Jobs for Matadors program, powered by Handshake. The online career networking site will provide AWC students and graduates with access to a built-in network of employers, expanding job opportunities and regional, national, and global professional learning experiences.

The platform will allow for employers to create job postings and virtual employer events as well as interview students. Students and alumni will be able to easily access Jobs for Matadors with their AWC account information and create profiles, upload resumes, and apply for internships, volunteer opportunities, and on/off campus employment.

To help assist students with their profiles, AWC will be holding free profile photoshoot events on a walk-in basis from April 13-15. Alumni are also invited to attend. Photoshoot opportunities in Yuma and La Paz counties are as follows:

It is recommended that students come dressed in professional clothing for their photo. If they do not own professional clothing, they will be allowed to select an outfit from Andale's Apparel, AWC's free business clothing resource for students. Students will receive their photo via student email and get to keep their selected apparel.

Andale’s Apparel was a 2021 Innovation Fund award winner, created to serve current and recently graduated AWC students with access to professional clothing for career development initiatives they may be otherwise unable to obtain.
