Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Get A Handshake Account? 

It's already created! Once you register for classes, your Handshake account gets automatically created. DO NOT create your own Handshake account before you register for classes or it will cause delays in getting you connected to jobs and internships. 

How do I find an on-campus job?

Log in to Handshake, or check the job board TV outside the Rocket Career Center at SU 1550.  All positions are posted on Handshake. Make sure to filter for on-campus jobs so you can see what's available!
