Posting a Job or Internship

​​​​​Handshake is an online job board and recruiting tool for your company's opportunities.  To get started with recruiting at DePaul, create an employer account on Handshake.  It takes about 3 minutes to set up your free profile.  Once your profile is set up and approved, you can post your open positions, search for students and create events.

Job Posting Pro-Tips from Handshake

  • When posting a job with multiple locations, create one posting and indicate the locations in the Job location field in the Details tab.
    • This will allow you to manage the posting more effectively and prevent individual postings for the same job. 
  • When choosing majors or majors groups in the Major categories field in the Preferences tab, select the most appropriate majors or major groups for the position instead of choosing all majors. 
    • The majors or major groups selected should correlate with the information provided in the description field.
    • Choosing the most appropriate majors or major groups will ensure that qualified students view the job on their feed. 
  • While School years is an optional field, select the preferred school year(s) for the job listed to narrow down your candidate pool.
