Find a job with Handshake

UW-Eau Claire – Barron County offers students an easy way to find jobs through the convenience of an online portal called Handshake. Handshake is a tool that makes it easy to find work-study jobs and part-time jobs on campus, or internships and full-time opportunities out in the real world with available listings all in one place. 

Employers can use Handshake as a recruitment tool as well, to identify qualified candidates for open positions, register for career fairs and manage on-campus recruitment activities. Your employment cycle as a student just entering college to graduating will be streamlined with resources like Handshake. 

The video below walks through the basics of Handshake, and don't be thrown by the Blugold/UW-Eau Claire language used in the video. The process is the same for students at both campuses.
