Chicago Career Connections Replaces UChicagoTRAK

If you've been to in the past week, you've noticed that the link to UChicagoTRAK on the left hand side of the page has been replaced with Chicago Career Connection, CAPS' new job posting and on-campus recruiting site. We're excited to roll out Chicago Career Connection this summer, and we think that students will find the new site more user friendly and easier to use. Just one of the things that we like about Chicago Career Connection - you log in with your CNET ID and password - no need to create a new username for yourself.

What's different about the new system? For one, the sign up for CAPS' weekly email lists is now stored within each students' profile. If you're already signed up for one or more of these lists, you do not need to re-subscribe to them. If you're not signed up, and would like to be, or if you are, and would like to remove yourself, follow these instructions to change your subscription.

CAPS' Email Lists in Chicago Career Connection:

Receive weekly* emails from CAPS regarding opportunities, workshops and resources in the following areas:

Arts, Culture and Non-Profits
Financial Services
General Business
Government/Public Policy
Graduate Student Resources
Science and Technology

To sign up for any of these lists, log into the new Chicago Career Connection on the right side of the page at

Once you are logged into your account, click on the "Profile" tab, on the upper left side of the screen.

Choose the tab for "Academic Information." Using the drop-down list, choose the email lists for which you would like to be signed up. To remove yourself from a list, you can go into the same tab and delete the lists that you do not want to be on any longer.

Please Note: If you have already signed up for an email list during past academic years, you don't need to re-register in Chicago Career Connection.

*Weekly emails are sent during Fall, Winter and Spring quarter. Emails are not sent during Summer quarter.
