We are moving to Handshake!

This summer, UIC officially became a Handshake school! We are very excited to move to Handshake, which is the premier site for connecting students to a wide variety of employers and opportunities!
Here are some important things to know:

• All students registered for Fall 2020 were automatically uploaded to the system – simply log in with your University credentials to “claim” and activate your account! Be sure to complete your profile so that Handshake can begin suggesting opportunities for you!
• If you are new to UIC, please note that we will be updating the system weekly as students register over the summer. So if you cannot log in yet and you are registered, just wait a week or so and you should be able to access the system.
• UIC Alumni are welcome to create new accounts on the system as well! Just follow the directions to register for a new account and we’ll get you approved right away.

Who We Are

We are a centralized service that offers assistance to UIC students, departments and off-campus employers. Such employment not only provides students with a means of earning money, it also provides students an opportunity to develop new skills and positive work habits which will ensure professional success. Students are expected to consistently execute job responsibilities in a satisfactory manner. In addition, we sponsor various job fairs throughout the year and a series of career development workshops.


Our mission is to enhance student learning and meet departmental student employment needs by providing meaningful work experiences.
