What is Handshake?

IUPUI adopted Handshake as our career services platform for students and alumni. It’s used by over 200,000 employers, including all Fortune 500 companies! Thousands of internship and job opportunities are posted on Handshake by employers specifically looking to hire students.

All IUPUI students have a Handshake account that is automatically created for them 24 hours after they enroll in classes. All you have to do is log in to Handshake to activate your account. Handshake will then recommend certain positions to you based on your profile, allowing for easy searching. Completing and updating your profile will provide Handshake with a better idea of which job and internship listings you may be interested in.

Do not create a Handshake account. Student accounts on Handshake are created automatically 24 hours after you enroll in classes. You will then be able to CAS login to Handshake using your IU username and password. If you are not yet enrolled in classes, or have questions about your Handshake access, please call our office at 317-274-5677.
