Employer Handshake Instructions

The UMBC Career Center wants to make it easier for its employers to connect with UMBC talent. That’s why
we partnered with Handshake — a free, online job and internship database. To post your position(s), connect
with candidates, and promote your recruiting events in Handshake, please follow the instructions listed below:

1. Create your user account

2. Join your existing company on Handshake, or create a new one

If your organization already exists in Handshake, it will auto-populate based on the email domain used for your
account. If your organization does not yet exist, you will see the option to create a new one. Learn more about How to Create a New Company Profile.

3. Connect with UMBC

Select University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) when you are prompted to connect with universities
in Handshake. Once we receive your request to connect with us, we will need to approve your request. New
account requests are reviewed and processed within one business day.

4. Post your opportunities

Once your connection request has been approved, you can begin posting your opportunities and connecting
with UMBC students in Handshake. Check out How to Post a Job.

5. Promote your recruitment events

Boost promotion of your posted opportunities by hosting recruitment events with UMBC candidates. Your
organization can create and request both in-person and virtual events directly in Handshake. Once submitted
and approved, your event will be visible to UMBC candidates. See more information on How to Request and Event.
