Handshake for Employers

Greetings from UCSB Career Services! We want to inform you of an exciting transition that will enhance how you recruit UCSB talent. Career Services is in the process of adopting a new dynamic recruitment platform known as Handshake, a contemporary recruitment and career planning software that will enhance your brand and connect you directly with talented UCSB students and recent alumni. Handshake is currently helping over 120,000 top employers ... including 95% of Fortune 500 companies ... easily find, recruit and hire the best college talent across the country. Handshake features free multi-school job posting, powerful applicant filtering, and direct student messaging. This platform will continue to support employers who are actively engaged in on-campus recruiting, career fairs, and information sessions, as well as, those who simply want to source top talent by posting job and internship opportunities.

In order to allow recruiters time to set up new Handshake accounts, we have dedicated May and the first half of June to employer setup. Note that students will begin logging into the new system after June 16, 2017.

Once you've created a user account and joined or created a company profile, you can add "University of California, Santa Barbara" to your school list by finding and requesting access to UCSB. You can then begin posting your jobs at UCSB!

Review the Handshake Employers page for more information on "Getting Started", "User Settings", "Company Settings", and "Jobs".

Our Handshake Support Team will be available to answer your questions throughout this transition. 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. Thank you in advance for your patience while we make this critical improvement to our processes.
