Handshake

RIT is now a Handshake school!Handshake logo

We have an exciting transition to announce! As of July 28th we have switched from RIT Job Zone to Handshake.

If you haven't already done so, please join Handshake AND select Rochester Institute of Technology as a school you wish to recruit from.  Signing up is easy and takes less than 5 minutes. Want more information? Visit Handshake's Employer Site. For support you can submit a question or concern to Handshake here or call 855-426-3136.

RIT students and alumni will begin to use Handshake on August 1st. But you can start posting your jobs now -- simply login and select Rochester Institute of Technology from the list of Schools.


We have moved from Symplicity’s NACElink CSM to post jobs -- also known as RIT Job Zone -- to Handshake. After careful comparisons, we think that the Handshake system will better meet the needs of our employers to connect with student and alumni candidates. We think you will agree.
