For employers: Posting jobs and accessing resumes

Handshake quick guides for employers

We use Handshake to allow you as an employer to post jobs and search for resumes. There is no fee for these services.

For VT departments who wish to hire:

How to create your VT dept user account.
How to create your VT dept profile.
How to post your VT dept jobs.
Please ensure you receive our emails through Handshake.

Please note: If as a VT employee you want both an employer Handshake account and a student / alumni Handshake account (for the purpose of advising students), you must request your employer account using a VT alias as your username. Why? Because a student account requires use of your real VT PID email address, and Handshake will not permit anyone to have both an employer and student account using the same email address.
If you already created your employer account using your VT PID email, go into your employer account and change your email address to an alias. See more in information for advisors about student accounts.
