If you’ve ever tried to use Webadvisor for something, you may have noticed that it looks like it was created in the 90s. Luckily, Regis is slowly moving some services found on Webadvisor to other sources, starting with Human Resources and Payroll. Now, student employees will access their payment information, onboarding for new jobs, and tax information through Workday.
Workday is a site that allows students to upload their contact information, and payroll information in a secure way. It’s a more modern and streamlined version of what students used to do through webadvisor, including allowing students to set up direct deposit for their paychecks directly from the site.
Don’t ignore emails about Workday as it will be an essential tool starting this semester, and the first pay period ends tomorrow, Friday Jan, 25, so you’ll need to log on and submit your timesheet there.
Another service modernizing for the Regis community this semester is from the Center for Career and Professional Development. They’re replacing CareerLink, their former job search site, with Handshake. Handshake comes with a mobile app that allows students, staff, and alumni to search for job opportunities from wherever they are.
Much like Workday, once you login with your Regis credentials, your profile is ready for you right away. Handshake offers a brief interests quiz including asking what type of employment you’re looking for, where, and in what sectors so it can match you with the best opportunities out there.
If you aren’t sure, or want some help with Handshake, visit the Center for Career and Professional Development office on Wednesday, January 30 for their openhouse to introduce the app to students. You can also visit the Center for Career and Professional Development website for information or to set up an appointment with a career counselor who can even help you discover your interests and career paths.
Regis is moving into the future (thankfully), and with these two new services that move is happening quickly. Go check out your new tech Rangers!
