Privacy Policies

The Emory University Career Center uses a web‐based software program known as "Handshake" to host career-related opportunities and events for students and alumni. 

How will your information be used?

  • To enable employers to access and use various tools, features, and functionality of the Handshake system, such as posting jobs and interview schedules.
  • To enable students/alumni to access various tools, features, and functions of the Handshake system, in particular, job posting, events, and career-related resources.
  • To communicate with employers regarding use of Handshake, advise of site changes, or to inform you of other possible events/activities associated with recruiting.

Students and Alumni

Handshake may receive and collect personally identifiable information about you, a student/alumni user, (name, contact information, demographic information, academic history, G.P.A, employment history, etc.) when you upload resumes, cover letters, and other documents which contain personal information.

The Emory University Career Center may access some of the job seeker's personal information to send e‐mail to a job seeker using communication tools on the site, to publish resumes in the school's resume book(s) on the site, and to send resumes to employers on behalf of a student/alumni.

Employers that use Handshake through The Emory University Career Center will have access to your resume, if submitted and made public by you to a resume book, individual job listing, or your Handshake profile, and the personal information contained therein for recruiting, interviewing, and hiring purposes. 


The Emory University Career Center and Handshake will collect information from employers utilizing the site. This information includes contact information (such as your phone number or e‐mail address), unique identifiers, financial information (such as a credit card number), and demographic information (for example, location, type of organization, size of organization). The financial information collected will be used only to bill your organization for fees associated with career fairs and other approved services. Handshake has a contract with Stripe to verify credit card numbers. Your credit card information will be deleted as soon as the transaction is completed and will not be stored on Handshake's servers. You will need to re‐enter that information each time there is a new financial transaction.

Handshake will receive and collect from employers job postings (including job descriptions, employment qualifiers, and salary information) and interview schedules posted either directly through Handshake or shared with The Emory University Career Center.
