CareerShift is a better way to network and job search. CareerShift makes networking possible for everyone regardless of existing connections so you can find your dream job faster. Citadel students and alumni can register for CareerShift for FREE.

This is a great program. I signed up and was able to log in without incident. It is easy to maneuver, user friendly and diverse in job offerings, contacts, career management tabs and I liked the education section, offering insight into the various components of job seeking.
I really think this a great start for any of us to search for work, but to make contacts with Citadel family and to build a network of friends and associates that bridges the gap after graduation and allows for continuity.”

I am so pleased the CAA has invested in this tool. We have needed a more nuanced tool for alumni to alumni career engagement. CareerShift is not just another job board. It allows a direct connection to a potential informational interview. In my current role, I use it to research the strength of our alumni base within corporations to prepare for meeting with senior leadership.
