Start using Handshake

  1. Log-in to Handshake. Click the Sign up for an Account link in the lower left corner to get started. Select the Student/Alumni option. You will be directed to try logging in using your UNG email address. If that does not work, click “Register a New Account”.
  2. Fill out your profile. Check to see that any pre-loaded information is correct (pay special attention to your major and GPA). If you find an error, contact Career Services to correct it. The more information you add to your profile, the easier it will be for employers to find you. Decide whether you want to make your profile public or private.
  • A public profile and most information in the profile, can be seen by any employer using Handshake and Career Services staff. (Note: Some Handshake components, like GPA, have their own privacy settings)
  • If you make your profile private, it will only be seen by you and the Career Services office.
  • You can switch your privacy status at any time.
  1. Upload your resume.
  2. Try Handshake! Use the landing page, top search bar and filters to look for companies and jobs you’re interested in. Remember, you can save searches in Handshake so finding relevant employers and jobs will be easy!
  3. Follow jobs and employers that interest you. When you follow an employer or a job, you can begin filtering based on companies you follow.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll be on your way to using Handshake to help you launch your career!
