Job & Internship Listings

The CEC and the Simmons Library provide a wealth of resources to help Simmons students find jobs and internships. The resources are accessible by and intended for use by both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumnae/i of these programs. Faculty and staff also have access to these resources for career advising and related purposes.

NOTE: If you are seeking to post an opening to hire a Simmons student for an on-campus position, please visit the Hire a Student page.


Handshake is the primary Simmons online job board. Employers post internships, full-time jobs, part-time jobs and other off-campus work opportunities. The postings range across all fields and industries and the opportunities posted are local, regional, national, and even international. The job opportunities posted on Handshake are by employers seeking to reach the Simmons community. All Simmons students and alumnae/i may register to use this system. 

The CEC provides faculty and staff access to Handshake so they can view job listings, upcoming career events, and other career-related information. To obtain access and set up your own account and login, please go to and:
  • Enter your Simmons email address
  • Select "I'm a Student or Alumni" (even though you are not, this will give you insight into the student view of the system)
  • Click on "Register a New Account"
  • Complete the fields on the screen, accept the terms of service, and click "Submit"
  • You will be instructed to confirm your email. Go to your email inbox, select the email from Handshake, and click "Confirm Email"
  • You will be redirected back to Handshake, where you will need to log in using your email and password.
  • Complete the profile set-up information, including where you would like to work, fields of interest, skills, organizations, and work/volunteer experience. Click "Launch"
  • Your profile will be created, and you will be notified that your access is pending. Once a system administrator verifies your faculty/staff status and approves your profile, you will be notified via e-mail and gain full access to Handshake

Library Resources

The Beatley Library career resources, both print and online, are extensive and provide students and alums with access to both targeted and general job listings. To access these resources, visit the main library Career Resources page. To see the full breadth and depth of career guides maintained and update by Beatley's research librarians see the Simmons Library Career Guides page here.

Rather than posting jobs directly from employers, aggregators such as and search and compile lists of results from all different job banks and corporate sites, making them a convenient one-stop shop for the job seeker.
