Gaucho Alumni are the #1 resource for our currently enrolled students. Now, more than ever, it’s vital for our students to reach out to and begin building relationships with Gauchos. In that spirit, UCSB Career Services invites alumni to join us in “Gauchos Hiring Gauchos,” an initiative that we hope makes it easier for Gauchos to help and support other Gauchos.
Career Services invites alumni to join Handshake, UCSB’s premier online job and internship database. We are excited to be able to provide this tool for alumni looking to develop career connections with our currently enrolled students.
- If you used Handshake as a student within the past year, you can still access Handshake with your Umail account by reseting your Handshake password since Single Sign-On is not available once you leave UCSB. Your Umail account is good for 13 months after your LAST REGISTERED quarter. Read more about the Alumni Grace Period.
- If you have not attended UCSB for over a year, you will need to update the email on your existing Handshake account from Umail to your personal email OR, if you never had a Handshake account, you will need to request a new alumni account.
- Do NOT request a Handshake account using Handshake's "Request an Account" feature. We cannot verify the information submitted via this form so we will reject the account.
If you have employment or internship opportunities and would like to hire a current or recently graduated Gaucho, register on Handshake and post them now! For recruiting needs and questions, visit the Employer section of our website.
