Handshake for Students

Handshake, Webster University’s online career management and recruiting platform, is an exclusive portal for students to make connections with employers who post jobs and internships through the system, in addition to managing other aspects of their internship or job search process. 

Handshake is the premiere career management platform utilized by thousands of employers and students from around the world. Key features of the platform include a database of employment positions, recommended jobs based on the interests of students, and a variety of career development virtual events. Students can also meet with their designated career advisor by scheduling an appointment through Handshake. Advisors can meet with students in-person, through video conference, or by phone.
