Using Handshake to Recruit Students
From your Handshake account, you can post open positions, register to attend a career fair, schedule on-campus interviews, or host an employer informational session.
Visit Handshake and create an account within the Handshake network if you haven't already. If you need help, you can use the step-by-step instructions. If you already have an account in the Handshake network, simply search for University of Wisconsin-Platteville or simply Platteville to connect with us. Do not search for “UW-Platteville.”
Once in your account, there are various links on the side of the page where you can post jobs, create events, register for the career fair, and request on-campus interviews. You can also download students’ public resumes, search for resumes, and send messages to students. Students are able to search for positions as well as apply for positions through the Handshake system.
