Handshake is an online platform to connect students and employers that capitalizes aspects of the social web to connect students and employers. Students can use it to follow employers’ activities, discover opportunities and events, and schedule appointments with their Career Coach. Students can also make their profile visible so that employers can seek them out for opportunities. Employers can register for career events, join our Partners Program, and post opportunities. Get started by logging in.
