What is Handshake?
Handshake is the #1 place where students find jobs and get hired as employers are recruiting students specifically from your university! This is an all-in-one career management tool where you can search and save jobs/internships/co-op opportunities, register for and manage your Kent State university events, fairs and more!
Please note that your Handshake account is automatically created by the time you are admitted to Kent State University, and you are automatically subscribed to the Handshake email list. If you select to unsubscribe from the Handshake email list, please note that it is an absolute unsubscribe, meaning that you will no longer receive any email notifications regarding career events, fairs, jobs, and internships postings.
Why should I fill out my Handshake profile?
This will allow Handshake to identity and recommend personalized information regarding internships/jobs posting to you based on your profile information.
Join one or more career communities on Handshake
You can join one or more career communities on Handshake’s My Career Interests tab to help you explore, engage with, and discover careers that align with your interests and goals.
