This university-wide subscription does not include access to Firsthand career networking tools. Rutgers Business School subscribes to a fuller version of Firsthand with access to the networking tools. RBS students should use the RBS version, while non-RBS students should use this university-wide version. This university-wide subscription is maintained by University Career Services, not by Rutgers University Libraries. Questions about access and issues should be reported to University Career Services via firstname.lastname@example.org.
