How to Create a Handshake Account for Campus Employers

We’re excited to announce that Colorado State University has shifted its campus employment job postings into Handshake.  Handshake provides a better user interface, quicker approval time frames and more control of your postings and application management!

Please read these instructions on how to move your department’s open jobs into Handshake.

If you do not already have a Handshake account:

  • Either join your department’s employer account if one has already been created. (tip: you can search now) Or ask your department’s HR liaison to create the Handshake employer profile for your department using the following naming convention: Name your employer Colorado State University – Department Name (dept code), e.g., Colorado State University – Career Center (8008). 
  • Please do not ask to join the main Colorado State University Handshake account. This account will no longer be used to post jobs.

If you already have a Handshake account associated with your specific department:

  • We’ve adjusted your employer account name to the following naming convention: Colorado State University – Department Name (dept code), e.g., Colorado State University – Career Center (8008).

****Please note that employers are able to set up divisions or separate programs under the same Handshake account. Handshake accounts will be organized by Department Code. Information on how to do that can be found at: https://support.joinhandshake.com/hc/en-us/articles/219133107****
