Finding On-Campus Jobs and More on Handshake

Connecting students with employers
January 3, 2023

As students are relaxing and catching up on sleep over winter break, offices on campus are posting new jobs on Handshake, Stout’s on-campus and post-graduation job board.

During the school year, our team at Career Services knows your student is using their time to work on projects, do homework and study. If they’re looking for some extra financial support or want to get involved in a specific area on campus for professional experience, we encourage them to consider an on-campus job.

Admissions campus tours

By working on campus, your student can:

  • Have flexibility around class and extracurriculars
  • Make new friends
  • Walk or bike to work
  • Work or conduct research with faculty
  • Use work-study dollars from financial aid package

They can work in so many departments, from Dining and Housing to the University Library, give tours with the Admissions office, help their peers at the IT HelpDesk or Student Business Services and more.

Handshake isn’t just a place to search for on-campus jobs though. It’s also used by companies to post internships and full-time job openings. More than 200,000 employers, including Fortune 500 companies, post jobs on Handshake.

Student Business Services

Handshake offers a single login portal for your student and employers, as well as personalized job recommendations based on your student’s major, interests and more!

If your student is close to graduating or needing a co-op/internship, make sure they check Handshake for opportunities.

Your student can optimize their Handshake profile by meeting with a career services counselor. They can schedule an appointment by email, or call us at 715-232-1601.
