HANDSHAKE: Key Steps to Get Started

If you plan to actively participate in the internship or full-time job search, here are some key steps to take NOW to get started with Handshake.

  1. Log into Handshake (Recommended Browsers: Google Chrome and Firefox): go to careers.kelley.iu.edu and click on Handshake in the upper right hand corner. (Utilize your SSO login to log into your account.)
  2. Complete your profile: Handshake utilizes the information you include to drive its algorithm and promote opportunities that would be specific to your interests. The more complete your profile the more likely you will be able to see opportunities of interest.

  3. Upload your most recent resume: If you need your resume reviewed, make an appointment with a Kelley Career Coach on Handshake.
  4. Make your profile public: If you don’t take the step to make your profile/resume public, employers will not be able to proactively connect with you. The UCS encourages you to have your privacy set to either Community or Employer if you are currently seeking employment.  (ARTICLE: About Student Privacy in Handshake)
