Handshake is a web-based recruiting system which allows the Center for Career Development to manage many of the recruiting-related activities we offer to students. Students who would like to participate in on-campus interviews and/or view electronic job postings MUST register in Handshake and utilize the system to view job openings, apply for positions, and sign up for interviews.

*It is recommended that you use Google Chrome as your browser with Handshake.
