Connecting Job Seekers and Employers

Handshake is the Simmons online employment site. It offers access to full- and part-time jobs, internships, volunteer and seasonal employment, and fellowship opportunities from organizations in Greater Boston, New England, and across the country.

All undergraduate and graduate students have a login to access Handshake’s searchable database of openings posted for the Simmons community. Alumnae/i can create an account with their Simmons ID. Employers can set up their own account free of charge and post job and internship openings. On request to the CEC, Simmons faculty and staff can also obtain a login to search and view Handshake postings.
