Handshake is your ONE-STOP-SHOP for all things career. 

Current Students – Career Services sets you up with a Handshake account on your first day of school, and you’ll have access to it after graduation and throughout your career.  

Alumni - Your Handshake account is still active , but we’ll need to submit an Email Switch Request to the folks at Handshake, so you can get back into the system. Please email us with your email of choice, and you’ll receive a verification email from Handshake (usually within 24 hours). Just click on the link in the email, log in, and enter the email verification code to complete the process. Then you’ll be all set to schedule your in-person, phone, or virtual meeting (please choose the alumni option), as well as see the companies coming to the next career fair.  

*** If you’re alumni who graduated pre-Handshake (2015), please get your new Alumni Email Address and register for your Handshake Account. It’s a fast and easy process.
