Handshake is our career information and web-based recruiting system, to utilize a variety of online services for Sagehens and Recruiters!

Did you know that 80% of students who fill out their profile are messaged by a recruiter?
Please complete your profile! To make things simpler: these are three most critical items to kickstart your Handshake profile. (These can all be found in the “Your Interests” section under “My Profile.”)

  • Job Type: Indicate whether you’re looking for an internship, part-time, or full-time position.
