The DePaul Career Center is pleased to introduce Handshake, our new hub for all things college to career
- jobs, internships, career fairs, events, mentors and more. Handshake launched
in May 2015, replacing the now discontinued Experience platform as the Career Center's
primary career services system. The Handshake platform was designed by students
for students with one goal in mind: to help connect students to their dream career.
In Handshake, students can find out about and apply for jobs and internships, RSVP
for career-related events and job fairs, search for and reach out to a mentor, get
the scoop on the employer they’ve been eyeballing and even make contact with a representative
on our staff.
The Career Center pre-enabled system access for academic advisors and a segment
of facutly/staff (primarily those who had been active users of Experience) when
Handshake launched. Login to the system at depaul.joinhandshake.com with your Campus Connect credentials.
If you have any difficulty accessing the system, please fill out our Handshake Account Request Form and our support staff will
create or approve your account.
Once you login, you’ll be prompted to complete your profile. As a student-focused
platform, the Handshake profile does not currently have a “faculty or staff” status
option. We encourage you to complete that portion of the profile with your students
in mind. For example, if you primarily teach or work with freshmen, you may want
to select that status option for now, so that the system will serve up events and
content relevant to that audience in your daily feed. As the system continues to
evolve, we will continue to share best practices for faculty and staff.
