Handshake Overview

Handshake is a repository of jobs and internships posted by employers interested in hiring UNH students. You can search directly ​for jobs on this system and set up saved searches where new jobs are e-mailed to you on a regular basis.

The system also allows students to post resumes and cover letters and often apply directly for jobs through Handshake.

Students also can sign up for appointments with Paul College career counselors to get a broad range of career help and advice. 

Once invited to interview on campus, you will use Handshake to sign up for on-campus interview time slots.

Next Steps

1)   Log into Handshake using your UNH log-in credentials.

2)   Upload a clean, PDF version of your resume. Complete profile information as well. The more complete your profile, the more efficiently Handshake can feed you appropriate postings.

3)   Start searching for positions. You will find that employers have been posting jobs throughout the summer and many of the large public accounting firms begin posting positions in August. 

Read the job descriptions and begin to prepare mentally for meeting recruiters and determining the type of work you wish to pursue.
