Meet Handshake - Johns Hopkins' career services platform

Handshake is a powerful career services platform that connects job posters and job seekers at all career stages. Offered across all nine academic divisions of Johns Hopkins, Handshake is a one-stop-shop career tool, allowing job seekers to create an online profile and access openings posted by approved employers—a group that numbers 50,000 across all industries—and sorted for their particular interests and experience.

For job seekers looking for that first position, a career detour, or the perfect fit after completing an advanced degree, Handshake is the place.

For job posters, Handshake allows employers to recruit students and fellow alumni for positions within their own companies.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Go to https://jhu.joinhandshake.com
  2. Click on “Current students - click here” in the blue box in the middle of the screen. 
  3. Sign in with your JHED ID and password.

If you need any help, refer to Handshake’s Help Center for Students and alumni, watch Handshake’s 2-minute training videos or send an email to handshake@jhu.edu .

You can also access Handshake through GoHopOnline.com , the online alumni directory, from the Jobs Board.
