Cornell Handshake Tutorials

What is Cornell Handshake?

Cornell Handshake is a web-based system that Cornell Career Services uses to bring you career-related information, job and internship postings (including on-campus recruiting), employer events, and more. Resources for conducting career research are also available through the site.

On-Campus Recruiting

To be eligible to participate in on-campus recruiting, students must complete an online tutorial (most recent version of Adobe Flash required; Firefox works best; pop-up blockers off). The tutorial takes about 20 minutes to complete, and students should allow two business days after completion for their eligibility status to be updated. You will not be notified of this change, but you will see an "ocr eligible" label in the left-hand column of your profile, indicating that you can now participate in on-campus recruiting. You will then be able to view and apply for interviews. When you choose to use the On-Campus Recruiting service, you also agree to abide by CCS's Job Search and Offer Acceptance Guidelines and Policies for students.

Cornell Handshake Student Login

You will sign in to Handshake through a single-sign on process using your Kerberos credentials allowing you to set up your account without using a Handshake-specific password. If this log-in process does not work, please contact us for assistance.

After logging in, complete or update your Profile so we can inform you about internships, jobs, special events, prelaw, premed, graduate school... and more!
