Handshake for On-Campus Departments

Handshake is the online job posting system that departments should use to advertise for their on-campus job positions for students. Each on-campus department should have their own individual company profile. This will allow to control your job postings, add staff members, etc.

When creating your Handshake account, do not connect with the “University of Illinois at Chicago” company profile. Instead, look for an existing company profile for your department, and if one has not been established, click “Create New Company” to do so.

When creating your company profile, please use the following template for your organization name: “University of Illinois at Chicago – Department Name”. Use the following template when posting jobs: "Position Title (Federal Work Study/Non-Federal Work Study)"
