Please be advised that all jobs, including jobs on Handshake, should be reviewed to ensure they are valid.  Every effort is made to vet employers before posting jobs/internships on Handshake. However, it is a rare case where a fraudulent post will occur.  To protect yourself, NEVER provide your social security number, driver's license number, bank information, or other private information to an employer.  This is a warning sign that the post is fraudulent.  You can always contact the Career Center with any concerns and notify us of suspicious posts.

If you have any problems logging in, please contact us.
