Handshake is CBU’s new online recruitment system that connects students and alumni with job and internship opportunities.

Handshake for Students & Alumni

Handshake For Students & Alumni: Allows students and alumni to browse employment listings (full-time, part-time, internships, and more), as well as post resumes, cover letters, and other professional documents. Resumes can also be posted directly for available positions.

Current students already have an account waiting for them, and should sign in with the current CBU email address and password. New and incoming students will have an account created for them once all ID numbers have been assigned. (Please wait until this account has been created before attempting to create your own to avoid system errors.)

Alumni who do not have an account can create one at the same link, though they do NOT need to use their CBU email address. Alumni accounts can be created with personal email addresses.

Handshake for Employers

Handshake for Employers: Allows employers to post job opportunities (full-time, part-time, internships, co-ops, and more) and make them available to CBU students and alumni, while also being able to search for resumes from qualified candidates.

There are additional employers that notify us via email of opportunities that are available at their various company websites. Several of these company sites are linked from the Handshake account home page. Some of these companies will post positions through Handshake, while some will only be listed on the various company sites. For additional job search tools and organizations with links for specific majors, check out our page of other Career Resources.
