• Handshake, our new online job-search engine, will be launching in spring 2017!

    Handshake offers powerful search tools and alerts that help students find the best fit from more than 500,000 jobs and internships posted by 100,000 companies, nonprofits, and government organizations.

    Until Handshake is launched, employers are welcome to send job postings to Our staff will then distribute them to faculty and staff, as well as advertise through social media, etc.

    Please note: Any posting by companies where the student must give “parties” or do in-home demonstrations, provided that the products are generally tasteful household or personal care/fashion related products, will be approved for job postings, but with no access given to resumes. Distasteful (i.e., might reflect negatively on IUP or department stakeholders) services/products will not be approved for posting or registering for career fairs. 


    IUP Career and Professional Development Center resources are provided free of charge to employers and to student job seekers.

    All job listings are posted at the discretion of the CPDC. We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, disabled or Vietnam Era veteran status, sexual orientation, disability, or gender. IUP also reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the university and/or the students and alumni.

    The CPDC provides a referral service and makes no particular recommendations regarding employers. We make no representations or guarantees about positions posted by this office. We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus employment. Students and alumni are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private off-campus employment. IUP Career and Professional Development Center staff members are available for consultation on how to research prospective employers.

    When seeking a student to fill a part-time off- or on-campus position, all hiring and compensation for work performed by student employees is handled directly between the student and the employer. IUP does not perform background checks on students applying for jobs, nor on employers posting job opportunities. Employers and students are encouraged to request reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials, and overall fit between the employer and the student applicant.
