UIC officially became a Handshake school in the summer of 2020!  Handshake is the premier site for connecting students to a wide variety of employers and opportunities. It’s your ONE STOP SHOP for full time, internship, part time and on campus employment listings!

Here are some important things to know:

  • All UIC undergraduate and graduate students registered for classes are automatically uploaded to the system – simply log in with your University credentials to “claim” and activate your account! Be sure to complete your profile so that Handshake can begin suggesting opportunities for you!  If your University credentials don’t work, simply create a new account with your UIC email.
  • UIC Alumni are welcome to create new accounts in the system as well! Just follow the directions to register for a new account and we’ll get you approved right away.
  • UIC students and alumni can also use Handshake to register for appointments with Career Services staff!
