The Handshake platform was designed to help connect students to their dream career. Handshake is a robust career platform exclusively for the DePaul community. The platform offers access to jobs and internships, career planning resources, career-related event information, mentors, and scheduling capabilities with a career advisor or for an on-campus interview. Students, graduates and alumni can also get the scoop on an employer they've been eyeballing or get in contact with a Career Center representative. 

Handshake is your career connection resource, allowing you to: 

  • Schedule advising appointments
  • Find employment opportunities based on your interests
  • Discover when employers will be on campus
  • Connect with DePaul students and potential employers
  • Register for events and programs in your field of interest
