This past fall the Career and Professional Development Center launched its new career management system, Handshake, to all current IUP students and alumni. 

As one of the fastest growing platforms among career centers nationwide, Handshake allows students and alumni to search and have access to a variety of employment opportunities. Its user-friendly platform lets clients easily set up a profile, filter out job opportunities based on interest, location preference, industry, etc., and interact with employers.

For employers, Handshake is a one-stop platform for all your recruiting needs, with features such as multi-school job postings, powerful applicant filtering, and direct student messaging. There are more than 200,000 employers already using Handshake, and they include big names such as Google, Under Armour, Starbucks, Procter & Gamble, and Snapchat, just to name a few.

There are currently more than 8 million students and alumni already using Handshake. Current IUP students have an account automatically created for them, so you can sign into your account by going to, then logging in with your IUP Single Sign-On (SSO) password. IUP alumni are encouraged to create your personalized account so you don’t miss out on the thousands of opportunities currently waiting for you.
