To access or create your account, log on to Handshake (Please note: IUP alumni lose access to their student e-mail address and SSO [Single Sign-On] access within 60 days after graduation, so
you will need to use your personal e-mail address. Do not use the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Sign-On link.
You will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your e-mail address on Handshake. Once you have confirmed your account, you will need to complete your profile.
This information is very important. Your profile provides the criteria by which employers search for potential employees. When you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to create a profile and upload your resume into the system. The more complete
your profile is filled out, the better we will be able to assist you and the better Handshake will be able to populate your news feed with opportunities that matter to you. Important: Upon initial login, you have the option to share your profile
information with employers by selecting or deselecting the checkbox under the “Yes, I want employers to be able to find and view my profile” area. Handshake will default to a public profile unless you select otherwise.
Your IUP Handshake home page will list important upcoming events, as well as current jobs employers have posted on the Handshake system.
With more than 10,000 employers in this database, this section is a great resource to identify companies that interest you.
