Syracuse University Introduces Handshake Software

Syracuse University Introduces Handshake Software

Syracuse University recently transitioned to Handshake, a platform that easily enables employers to search for and manage relationships with top student talent and more.

“Handshake is a one-stop site that allows employers to register for events and post opportunities at multiple schools across the country through a single sign-on,” explained Kristen DeWolf, associate director of employer relations at Syracuse University’s Martin J. Whitman School of Management. “It is a modern, intuitive technology that will save employers time and money. We are very excited to offer this new platform to our partners.”

Handshake also offers employers the ability to filter applicants and directly message potential employees.

By using the registration link below, you will activate Handshake for recruiting at Syracuse University and gain access to our diverse student population of over 22,000, representing over 200 majors across 13 academic units.


Previously, the University was using OrangeLink, managed by Symplicity, as a campus management and job posting software.

For questions regarding this transition or your upcoming recruiting strategy, contact DeWolf at kbdewolf@syr.edu or (315) 443-2325.
