Handshake for Students & Alumni

UNH Career and Professional Success uses Handshake to connect students to their counselors and hiring employers, and host career events

Handshake helps you connect with professional success! All UNH students have an account created for them upon enrollment at the university. This account can be accessed through UNH's unique link using the button below. 

Log in to Handshake

Handshake is UNH's one-stop-shop to:

  • Search and apply for full-time jobs and internships
  • Schedule an appointment with your college's Career and Professional Success team to discuss your career documents (resumé, cover letters, etc.), job/internship search process, and much more 
  • Learn about and attend career success events, programming, professional development opportunities, and recruiting events
Attention Incoming Students! 

An account will be created for you before the start of the fall semester. Please do not request an account over the summer. Email caps@unh.edu with any questions.
