How Can Handshake Help You?

There are three ways in which Handshake can benefit faculty/staff:

1.  Do you have an on-campus internship opportunity available for undergraduate students?

Do you have an opportunity in your department that aligns with an undergraduate student's major or minor?  Do you have a student employee working for your department whose job description may be approved as an internship for academic credit?

By registering your department as an on-campus employer, you will be able to post/edit your positions and review resumes/applications received.  The Career Center can also assist you by sending targeted emails to a specific group of students (by major/minor, by class year, etc).

Step-by-step instructions will walk you through how to create an on-campus employer account as a staff/faculty member.    

For questions, please contact Patty Taggart at patricia.taggart@millersville.edu or (717) 871-7658.
