UCR Handshake: Jobs, Information, Assessment and more!

UCR Handshake is your career management portal for accessing curated career resources and finding internships, full-time or part-time jobs, on-campus positions and more, specific to your career interests! 

What are the benefits of using Handshake vs. other job search platforms:  

  • Handshake provides access to thousands of companies, including Fortune 500 companies, across the nation and the world – many of which are specifically looking for UCR students and grads.  
  • Handshake gives you easy access to Career Center workshops, events and career fairs organized specifically for UCR students, as well as employer-hosted events.  
  • Handshake is where you can sign up for an appointment to meet with your designated College Career Specialist to talk about you career interests and goals, develop your job search strategy, review your resume, schedule a mock interview, and more!  
  • Handshake also provides access to other career resources right at your fingertips. One example is  Focus2, a self-evaluation tool that will help you define who you are and find the kinds of jobs and career paths best suited to you (Attention New Users: Access Code can be found on Focus 2's login site via Handshake's Resource page). If you have never heard of the careers recommended by Focus2, use Glassdoor or Career Insider to learn about different industries and economic sectors.
