Handshake for Faculty and Staff

  • What are the benefits of inviting an employer to Handshake?

    Our students’ professional success is a shared goal, and Handshake is FIU’s platform to connect students and alumni with employers.

    Handshake can also link employers with FIU as a whole to meet employers’ recruiting needs company-wide, and it provides opportunities to engage our students through professional development workshops, virtual and on-campus interviews (post-COVID-19), and visits to targeted departments on campus.

  • What happens after I invite an employer to Handshake?

    When you welcome an employer to Handshake, that employer will start by creating an account. Within 48-72 business hours, their account will be approved, or FIU’s Career and Talent Development team will provide detailed feedback on how to gain approval. Once approved, employers are able to post jobs and internships and register for events with Career and Talent Development and the Business Career Team.

  • How do I help an employer promote a job or internship?

    Once an employer posts a position on Handshake, you can email your students a link to the job post. 

    The more students actively use Handshake, the more applicants employers will receive. You can assist employers by promoting Handshake to your students: Remind students to activate their Handshake account, upload their resume for approval, and complete their profile prior to their internship/job search.

  • How can I find out if an employer posted a job and/or how many students applied?

    You can contact us to verify if the employer is active and connected with FIU on Handshake and if they have any pending or active job posts. We can confirm the number of applicants once the job is closed.

  • Why do students need an approved resume?

    Students who present professional resumes to employers are more likely to successfully secure internships and employment and best represent the quality of FIU talent, thus attracting more employers.
