Handshake is a robust career management system where you can search for full-time positions, internships, off-campus research opportunities, and on-campus jobs. In addition, Handshake is Lafayette students’ go-to hub for employer and Career Center events, employer information, and curated career resources. The Handshake system can also be used to submit a request for an appointment with your Gateway Counselor. Handshake allows student access to these resources 24/7. Students can access Handshake from the “Get Career Support” block of your my.lafayette.edu portal.
Alumni (prior to the class of 2020) should contact the Gateway Career Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) to gain access to Handshake.
