Handshake is the job board and career development platform for University of Arizona students and graduates.
Every current, degree-seeking UA student and recent graduate from within the past year has a new account on Handshake ready and waiting. Just activate it by clicking on the "University of Arizona Sign On" then entering your UA email address. If you graduated more than a year ago, just create a new account.
On Handshake, you can easily search and apply for on-campus jobs, internships, and full-time opportunities with employers recruiting UA students and alumni. Log in to access your account and confirm with your UA email.

Why should I log in to Handshake?
Intuitive and easy to use
Facebook’s little sibling, only smarter, cuter, and this one will find you a job! When you log in, the home screen will show you jobs, employers, and events. These are tailored just for YOU based on your major, year, profile, and your career interests.
The platform is only available for trusted employers that are actively seeking university-level talent. Our employer engagement team screens employers to ensure that Handshake is free of “scam jobs”* so that you spend less time checking to see if a job is legitimate and more time finding opportunities that are of interest to you. Handshake even provides you with a quick snapshot of how you match up with the employer preferences, while providing you with the freedom to still be able to apply for any position you’d like.
help is inside
A little support or guidance can go a long way, especially if you have a burning question or hit a bump in the road. Make an appointment with a Career Educator right in Handshake. It’ll be a relief to know that help is on the way!
explore the possibilities
If you’re interested in exploring, Handshake can help connect you with career events like Info Sessions with employers from industries you’re interested in exploring, or learn about career paths you haven’t considered. You can also find workshops to hone your resume or interviewing skills. Join the event and favorite employers to receive updates.
*Handshake allows employers to connect with UA students and alumni. While we screen employers and the positions they post, it is very important that you as a job seeker exercise common sense and caution when applying for jobs on Handshake or any other job application system.
