Handshake for Employers

Handshake is the career center’s recruiting and career services platform for Spelman students and employers. Handshake offers your team many features including:

  • Easy multi-school management
  • Powerful applicant filtering
  • On-campus recruiting schedules
  • Career fair management
  • Robust Help Center

To create your own Handshake account:

  • Visit the Handshake registration site to start the process of creating your profile. During registration, if your organization does not already have an employer account, you will need to create one.
  • It is important that both your personal and your employer account are robust, giving students a clear description of your organization.
  • Use Handshake’s employer support articles to learn how to best utilize the platform.

To post a Job in Handshake

  • Log in to your Handshake account.
  • Click on “Job Postings” on the left-hand side column, and then “New Job” in the upper-right hand corner.
  • Complete the fields with as much detail as possible to “Create Job.” The details you provide help Handshake display your opportunity to the right target audience of students.
  • You can distribute the job posting to one or more universities at which you wish to recruit. The “Schools” tab will allow you to do so. Select Spelman College in the “Choose a School” dropdown to post the job for Spelman students.

Access Handshake

Jobs need to be approved by the Career Center before they can be seen by students.

Handshake representatives are responsive and eager to troubleshoot for you!  You can reach out by selecting the Help link in the blue navigation bar at the top of your Handshake screen.  You can also contact the Career Planning office by calling 404-270-5278.

Please note: Handshake is best viewed with completely updated web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari).
