E-mail Distribution Lists

Help us to get the word out to you about relevant career resources and opportunities. Activate your Handshake account and complete your career interests, including signing up for some of our CareerMail newsletters and announcements, and we will send you targeted communications to help you with your career development, exploration, and job search.

Here's how:

STEP 1: sign into Handshake with your PennKey

STEP 2: click on "Career Interests" in the left-hand menu, and complete the different sections

STEP 3: don't forget to select relevant CareerMail categories so that we we can highlight relevant resources for you

STEP 4: choose industries and types of jobs that interest you - this will help Handshake promote the right type of opportunities for you

If you decide later on that some industries, jobs, or resources are no longer relevant to you, then simply go back into your profile and unselect these specific options

As a service to Penn graduate students, graduate alumni and current postdocs, Career Services maintains 20+ e-mail distribution lists. We send out information about jobs in many fields, including academia, program and workshop announcements and funding opportunities. Penn graduate students, graduate alumni, and current postdocs are welcome to sign up. Please note: if you add your name to multiple lists, you may receive duplicate messages.

Email forwarding causes problems with unsubscribing from the e-mail distribution lists and viewing digest messages. For this reason we strongly advise those interested in subscribing to not use an email address that is being forwarded to another account. Instead, it is best to subscribe directly with the email address that you are forwarding to and will be receiving the emails, such as an address from a Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail account.

Note: If you are in a Master's program in SEAS and are not receiving our e-mails, please contact Kaitlyn Barlow.

      DIGESTING MESSAGES

      Digesting messages allows you to receive one daily message that contains all the individual emails sent to a particular list in a 24-hour period. Digesting will limit the number of messages you receive in a day, but it also means that you will not receive immediate postings and announcements as they are sent out by Career Services. For example, if there was a last-minute room change for a program or workshop that was sent to the listserv, you might not receive the notice until later in the day. To adjust your settings to "digest," send a message to LISTSERV@LISTS.UPENN.EDU with nothing in the subject line and only the following text in the body of the email: SET (INSERT ABBREVIATED LISTSERV NAME HERE) DIGEST HTML. There should be no punctuation. Abbreviated listserv names can be found above, before each list's description. Example: To digest the messages you receive from the Design list, your message should read, SET GRADDESIGN DIGEST HTML; for Life Sciences, SET GRADLIFESCIA DIGEST HTML; etc. You will need to send this message from the email used to subscribe you to the list.




      UNSUBSCRIBING FROM A LIST

      To unsubscribe, send a message to LISTSERV@LISTS.UPENN.EDU with "SIGNOFF (ABBREVIATED NAME OF LIST)" in both the subject line and body of the email.  The listserv's abbreviated name, which you need to unsubscribe, can be found within parentheses above, before each list's description. For example, if you are on the Physical Science list, the subject line and message would be SIGNOFF GRADPHYSCIB. For Public Policy, SIGNOFF PUBLICPOLICY, for Business SIGNOFF GRADBUSINESS, etc.

      You should receive an automatic confirmation that you've unsubscribed.  If you have any questions, or if any of the commands you send fail, please contact the grad student team at 215-898-7530.
