STUDENTS AND ALUMNI LOGIN

Handshake is the primary college recruiting platform that allows you to engage with talented students in many ways. You can post employment or internship opportunities, participate in different career fairs, or request campus interview schedules and rooms. This will amplify the visibility of job and internship opportunities to a broad audience of students and recent alumni and will also develop your organization's name and brand recognition.

Handshake is also the platform for local individuals in the Gordon community to hire students for jobs like babysitting, nannying, landscaping, shoveling, etc. If you’re interested in hiring a student for this type of work you can go to this website: gordon.edu/postajob.
