So, why should you use Handshake to find an internship or full-time position?

HANDSHAKE IS EASY TO USE

Handshake is similar to Facebook, allowing you to interact with others while creating a stunning professional profile! When you log in, the home screen will show you jobs, employers, and events. These are tailored just for YOU based on your major, year, profile, and your career interests.

100% PROFILE COMPLETION = MORE OPPORTUNITIES

Work towards 100% profile completion – including updating your career interests. The more detailed your profile, the more customized your results. When completing your profile, consider making it public for employers to review. If you make it public, you can see which employers have reviewed your profile!

EXPLORE YOUR POSSIBILITIES

Go ahead and explore your opportunities, Handshake can help connect you with career events like Info Sessions with employers from industries you’re interested in exploring, or learn about career paths you haven’t considered. You can also find various career-related events, such as mock interviews, boot camps, and workshops that are hosted by Career Services and employer partners.

Handshake allows employers to connect with PVAMU students and alumni.  While we screen employers and the positions they post, it is very important that you as a job seeker exercise common sense and caution when applying for jobs on Handshake or any other job application system.
