Starting this week, Portland State University is officially transitioning to Handshake, a new and improved job and internship portal that will connect students and alumni with over 100,000 employers, including 95% of Fortune 500 companies. The official launch of Handshake coincides with Winter Term's All Majors Career + Internship Fair (Feb. 15th) and STEM Career + Internship Fair (Feb. 16th).
Handshake will replace CareerConnect as the main source of job postings outside of the university, and will continue to be administered by Advising and Career Services. PSU joins the ranks of dozens of other Oregon schools that are switching to Handshake, providing employers easier access to hire students all across the state.
Students and alumni can now sign up for Handshake and start creating their profiles today.
