Handshake: Employer FAQ's

Handshake is the fast and powerful new recruiting platform for sourcing Emory students and alumni. It uses cutting edge technology to better connect you with qualified candidates. You can use it to post job and internship listings, register for career fairs, manage on-campus recruiting, advertise your events, access student resumes and message students and alumni who meet your qualifications. You will also be able to promote your brand more effectively by customizing your employer profile, job postings and events to be more visually appealing to students.

Will Handshake replace Eagle Ops?

Yes. Handshake will completely take the place of Eagle Ops on July 1st, 2016. This means Eagle Ops will no longer be available to employers after June 30th, 2016.

How do I create an account in Handshake?

Visit the Handshake registration site to start the process of creating your profile. During registration, if your organization does not already have an employer account, you will need to create one. 

It is important that both your personal profile and your employer account are robust, giving students a clear description of your organization.

Use Handshake's employer support articles to learn how to best utilize the platform.

How do I connect my Handshake account with Emory University?

To post jobs, events, and on-campus interviews, you will need to request access to Emory University's Handshake account.

Follow Handshake's support articles to learn about this process.

Why can't I post a job at Emory University yet?

You must first request access (see above) and then wait for approval by one of our Career Center staff. Please allow 2-3 business days to process your request. Contact recruiting@emory.edu if you submitted your request and have not received a response within this time frame.
