Saginaw Valley State University has transitioned to Handshake

Saginaw Valley State University‚Äôs Career Services office is excited to announce our transition to Handshake, a modern career services platform designed to connect students and employers to each other, events, and opportunities. Read on for helpful resources to create and account and how to access Handshake.

  • Handshake hosts employers worldwide who post entry-level job and internship opportunities at SVSU.
  • Once students customize their profiles, Handshake will make job, internship and on-campus event suggestions to each student based on their profile settings.
  • Students can set alerts for certain employers and learn when those employers post opportunities.
  • Handshake will become the main method for students to learn about and register for on-campus career events and interviews.
  • When students choose to make their profile public, employers can recruit students directly through Handshake.
  • Founded in 2014, Handshake is quickly becoming the standard: more than 900 universities, 400,000 organizations and all of the Fortune 500 companies use Handshake.
