Student Employment Job Searching is now on Handshake!

Handshake is our career platform with more jobs, more employers, more engagement, and a more personalized experience.


Getting Started

  1. About logging in. Login with your RIT Computer account and you will be taken directly to your profile. But, you can sign in with your email. Problem is it has to be your RIT email (not nor Hotmail nor Gmail, etc.) and you will get prompted to set up another password.

    If you don't use your email you will be in pending and unable to go further.

  2. Once you’re on RIT's page, a good first step is to update your Profile (link on left hand side of your Handshake page).

    Some of your information will already be in your Handshake profile (this information would have been provided by RIT Office of Career Services, with support from the Registrar).

    Check to be sure all pre-loaded information is correct. Pay especially close attention to your major and GPA (if included).  If you find an error in any of your profile data, contact RIT's Office of Career Services to correct it. (Note: Handshake is unable to change any of your profile data, so contacting your school is best.)

  3. Upload a document. You’ll likely want to have a public resume available in Handshake for employers (and the Office of Career Services team) to see. [Video]

  4. Take Handshake for a spin. Use the landing page, top search bar and filters to look for companies and jobs you’re interested in learning more about or applying to. Remember, you can always save your searches in Handshake so finding relevant employers and jobs will be easy.
