Handshake Access for Faculty & Staff*:

The Career and Professional Development Center is now offering campus staff and faculty a courtesy account for access to Handshake, our online recruiting system. You will have access to the system exactly as a student uses it -- job listings, on-campus recruiting, student employment, workshops, information sessions and career fairs. However, we ask that you do NOT submit your resume to any of these postings/events. You may register for the student account by clicking here.  When prompted to select the type of an account, choose "student".  

If you have any questions, please contact Gerry Marnell at recruit@andrew.cmu.edu.
