As of Summer 2020,  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 classes are 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!

New students who have been issued a UIC email may request an account on Handshake.

• UIC Alumni are welcome to create new accounts in the system as well! Just follow the directions to register for a new account and we’ll get you approved right away.

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.
