    What is Handshake? 

    Handshake is an online tool and app designed to make finding jobs and internships easy. The Career Development Center manages the Handshake platform on Hamline's campus to ensure the events, jobs and employers you see are relevant to our community. Whether you know exactly what kinds of opportunities you’re seeking or you’re just starting out, Handshake and the Career Development Center can support you in your career goals.

    With Handshake you can:

    • Connect to the Career Development Center to make appointments. 
    • Discover meaningful opportunities.  
    • Learn about employers relevant to you. 
    • Reach out to other students and alums to get real-world advice.

    Want to schedule an appointment via Handshake?

    If you would prefer to schedule online, you may make your own appointments through Handshake. Once you have logged into your account using your Hamline University email address and password, click on "Career Center" at the top, right hand side of the page.
