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 iup.joinhandshake.com, 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.
