Handshake 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 platform. You will have access to the system exactly as a student would use 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. 

Register for your account.  When prompted to select the type of an account, choose "Student". Please note that by registering for an account, you are agreeing to the Handshake Courtesy Account User Agreement.

If you have any questions, please email

The Career and Professional Development Center provides designated campus staff access to a Handshake Courtesy Account under the following terms and conditions:

  1. Users of the Handshake Courtesy Account understand that they will access the account for student advising purposes only (and will NOT apply to any postings).
  2. Do not release the account username and password to any other person.
  3. You will lose access privileges if you fail to uphold this user agreement.
