For Employers: Posting Jobs & Accessing Resumes

We use Handshake to allow you as an employer to post jobs and search for resumes of Virginia Tech students and recent graduates.

We invite you to post positions for graduating students, and opportunities for experience during college, including internships, field studies, and cooperative education positions.

Posting ensures maximum visibility of your jobs to our students, 24/7. Posting your jobs is easy, and there is no fee.

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 inĀ information for advisors about student accounts.
