Handshake

Starting June 29: Drake University is transitioning to a new online career management system. "Career bluePrint" will be going offline and replace by "Handshake." 

Handshake is an online career management system designed to help students, alumni, and employers. 

Students

Students can view postings and apply for jobs on the system or through the means provided by the employers (company web site or with a company representative).  The system allows students to schedule on-campus interviews directly on the system. 

To Access: Log into myDrake, click Campus Resources, then click the Handshake icon

Employers

Employers post part and full time positions, internship opportunities, graduate programs, residencies, and fellowships on the system.  Employers have the option to complete a profile to provide detailed information about the company.  On-campus interview scheduling is another component that employers can utilize.

To Access: Register or list an employment opportunity

Alumni

Alumni can utilize the system to view jobs.

To Access: To explore jobs please request a login and password from Professional and Career Development Services staff
