Finding On-Campus Jobs and More on Handshake

Connecting students with employers
January 4, 2024

As students are relaxing and catching up on sleep over winter break, offices on campus are posting new jobs on Handshake, an online portal where students can find on-campus and full-time professional positions, as well as internships and co-ops.

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

Our on-campus jobs know that your student is a student first, so they’re more than willing to offer flexibility with class and extracurricular schedules. By working on campus, your student can:

  • 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.

Internships, Co-ops and Professional Positions

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, use Handshake to post jobs and network with students and alumni.

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! It's also where students can view employers who will be recruiting at our Spring and Fall Career Conferences, attended by more than 300 regional and national employers.

If your student is close to graduating or needing a co-op/internship, make sure they check Handshake for opportunities. UW-Stout alumni also have access to the platform.

Your student can optimize their Handshake profile by meeting with a career coach. They can schedule a virtual or in-person appointment on Handshake, by emailing, or calling 715-232-1601.
