Accessing Handshake

Welcome to Handshake!

Handshake is the official career service management service for more than 700 colleges and universities in the U.S. Today, Handshake only works exclusively with our partner schools. This means only students and alumni who are officially registered at our partner schools (i.e. specifically registered with that school's registrar) are eligible to create an account and use Handshake.

Students at Handshake partner schools can discover and favorite jobs and internships from over 300,000 employers, including 100% of the Fortune 500, top financial institutions, cutting-edge tech companies, leading design and marketing agencies, and nonprofits saving the world. Job recommendations are curated based on your interests, skills, major, location preferences, and search history.

If your school is not yet on Handshake, please contact your career center and tell them you want Handshake! If you're a registered student or alumni at a school that is a Handshake partner, but you still can't access Handshake, please visit our Help Center.
