Handshake is UVM’s platform for job & internship opportunities. Job-seekers can access over 650K employers from all over the world. You can also find students to fill your own job and internship positions.

Getting Started on Handshake

The first step to accessing Handshake resources is to create your profile. Profiles are easy to set up. You can log-in with your Net ID. We recommend the following:

  • Make a complete profile to attract the most employers – complete profiles get 5x as much attention

  • Include your picture or company logo if you are joining as a company

  • If you have never had a Handshake account or need to change your email address, please contact us: career@uvm.edu


Find Jobs

Once your profile is complete, you have access to the 1.5 million job and internship opportunities posted on Handshake each year. Opportunities span all industries and range from part-time to full-time.  

  • Use the filters to narrow down exactly what you want

  • Save searches and notifications as new opportunities arise

  • Read about experiences that other people have had

  • Contact other Handshake users to get more information about their experiences
