Connecting Job Seekers and Employers

Handshake is the primary Simmons job board, providing employers a vehicle to reach out to and hire Simmons students, both undergraduates and graduate students, and alumnae/i. Employers can post full-time jobs, part-time jobs, internships, volunteer positions, and fellowships.

In your Handshake account you can create an employer contact profile, post jobs for Simmons students and alumnae/i, register for on-campus career fairs and recruiting events, view the resumes of students that have been posted to the system, and more. There is no charge to employers either to set up an account or post position openings.
