Post a Job or Internship

University Career Services is pleased to offer employers the opportunity to connect with UNC students in online postings via Handshake.  Handshake is a networked platform used for recruiting college students at nearly 400 colleges and universities.  If you are already a Handshake user, simply go to the “schools” option and request access to University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill.  If you do not currently have a Handshake account, you will first need to create one before being able to post your opportunity, using the following steps.


Creating a Handshake account:

  • Go to the Handshake registration page and select the “employer” option.
  • Complete the form, providing your basic information, then check your inbox for a confirmation email from Handshake.
  • After confirming your email address, complete your employer profile (if your company already has a profile that was created by another employee in the organization, they may need to approve your connection to that existing account).
  • Your Handshake profile must include complete organization and contact information (organization name, address, organization URL, organization description, contact name, contact email-must use a company email- gmail, yahoo, etc. not allowed without prior permission form the Associate Director for Employer Relations, contact phone number).

****Instructions for UNC-CH Departments wishing to create an account****

After confirming your email check to see if your department already has an account.  It will look like the following example: UNC-CH University Career Services

If you do not see your department listed as the above example, continue to the next step and create an account for your department. 

The account name will be UNC-CH (your department name). 

Once created and submitted, a staff member from University Career Services will review/approve.  Once approved, you will then be able to post job/internship opportunities.
