Handshake

We are excited to inform you about a transition that will enhance how you search for jobs, internships, and events that match your career interests. Career Services has adopted a new dynamic recruitment platform called Handshake; a contemporary job/internship search tool and career planning software that is being used by 200,000+ top employers (including 98% of Fortune 500 companies) looking to hire college students just like YOU!

Once you’ve logged onto your account via single sign-on (your UCSBnetID) or your Umail account (@umail.ucsb.edu), you will be able to

  • quickly and easily find the best jobs and internships with personalized job recommendations based on your major and interests;
  • show off your best self to employers through a rich, customizable student profile;
  • register for on campus interview dates, employers information sessions, career fairs, workshops, and
  • interact with recruiters in a virtual space in order to learn about job/internships opportunities, company culture, campus visits, and much more.

After you log into your account and complete the interests section, we strongly encourage you to access the online training videos and informational tutorials to help you understand how to best take advantage of Handshake. 

Our Career Peer Advisors are available to guide you throughout this transition; you can find them in the Career Resource Room in Building 599. Although a conversion of this magnitude will certainly not come without some challenges, we’re committed to doing all we can to ensure a smooth transition.
