Handshake: For Employers


Handshake serves as the central employment hub for Arcadia University students and alumni, connecting them to opportunities presented by our employer partners. Handshake is a modern platform with several advantages for employers including:

  • Managing all of your campuses with one Handshake login account at no cost.
  • A mobile experience- update your job postings, view applicants, and more all while on the go using Handshake’s responsive design
  • Searching for students and reach out directly with in-app messaging.

Creating an Account

Organizations can create a Handshake account to post internships and job openings directly for students and alumni to view. Posting positions in Handshake is free. Many organizations are already on Handshake, which makes creating an individual user account quick and easy.

  • If you already have a Handshake account, you can log in from the Handshake Employer Portal.
  • If you are creating your account for the first time, click on the “Employer” area found at arcadia.joinhandshake.com/register. You will be asked to pick your company from a list or create a new company if your organization is not already in the system. Employers must register with a company email account, and any company whose email domain matches yours will be suggested when selecting an organization.
