Handshake logoThe Gateway Career Center is thrilled to announce the launch of Handshake, our newe-recruiting system! Handshake replaces the retired CareerSpot system. Handshake has the most opportunities for students and new college grads of any platform of its kind. This system will allow students to apply for full-time jobs, internships, off-campus research opportunities, and on-campus jobs. Additionally, students are able to use this system to access key professional resources curated for you by the Gateway Career Center. Students can even request an appointment with their Gateway Career Counselor.
Students should access Handshake from the “Get Career Support” block of their my.lafayette.edu portal. Alumni (prior to the class of 2020) should contact the Gateway Career Center (careers@lafayette.edu) to gain access to Handshake. 
Here are six key resources to help students launch successfully with Handshake:
  1. Getting Started with Handshake

  3. Profile Privacy Options
  4. Managing Your Notification Settings
  5. Leveraging Job and Internship Search Features
