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.
For information about hiring international students, review the UW-Platteville Guide to Hiring International Students.
UW-Platteville career fairs connect employers with our community of students and alumni. Increase your visibility on campus and register for a booth or sponsorship at a career fair.
Interviewing candidates on campus allows employers to identify and screen qualified candidates on the same day and increases our students' awareness of your company. Recruiting dates for employers choosing to interview on campus occur during the regular academic year (September-May). Many employers set up a campus interview date in conjunction with our fall or spring career fairs, but on-campus interviews can happen anytime during the academic year. Interview rooms are available to simplify your recruiting efforts.
Employer Informational Sessions
Scheduling an employer informational session on campus is easy. From your Handshake account, click Events on the left side of the screen. Click Request Event at the top right of your screen. You will be able to add the location, event features, date and time, and description.
Our team at the Career and Professional Development Office will contact you once your session has been confirmed. Please note that food for employer information sessions must be purchased from campus catering services.
