New Career Management System Connects Students to Employers

Handshake is more than a job posting site – it’s Loyola's new interactive career management tool that connects students and alumni to employers. In Handshake, students can schedule appointments for career advising, pre-health advising, and Quinlan School of Business coaching. Additionally, Handshake allows students to search and apply for thousands of employment and internship opportunities (including Federal Work Study positions), register for career fairs and events, apply for on-campus interviews, and more.

Employers can expect a streamlined path to Loyola talent by creating a free Handshake Employer Account today. In Handshake, employers can post open positions, share and register for events, and set up on-campus interviews.
