Handshake for Employers

What is Handshake?

Handshake is a comprehensive system that allows students and employers to interact on-line for employment connections. Employers can reach candidates directly by posting internship and full-time positions and by reviewing candidate resumes 24/7. Candidates can effectively find positions and apply directly on-line by submitting documents and applications electronically. Additionally, employers with access can view and register for career events, such as the Job & Internship Fairs.

Handshake is a national platform that allows employers to create one user account to access multiple schools
