Handshake: Employer FAQs

What is Handshake?

Handshake is a modern platform for career services management for hiring K-State students and alumni. It uses cutting edge technology to better connect you with qualified candidates.

Use Handshake to post job and internship listings, register for career fairs, manage on-campus recruiting, advertise your events, and message students and alumni who meet your qualifications. You will also be able to promote your brand more effectively by customizing your employer profile, job postings, and events to be more visually appealing to students.

What if I need help with Handshake?


Why hasn't my employer account at K-State been approved yet?

Under normal circumstances, it typically takes 3-5 days to process pending employer approval requests. If your request is not complete in this timeframe, please log into handshake and check your notifications for any comments regarding your registration.

If you have an urgent need to post a job or internship listing for K-State students, please contact Debbie Owens at careercenter@k-state.edu or 785-532-6506.

I joined the wrong organization. How do I fix this?

Read this Handshake article for assistance on how to switch to the correct organization.

How do I create a job posting?

Please review this Handshake Help Article. More job posting-related questions are answered here

I created a job posting, but now I can't find it.

Your job will not actually post to a school and show up under "Job Postings" until your account is approved at a particular school. You should be able to find all jobs under Job Templates.

Where do I find my fair registrations?

In Handshake, click "Fairs" on the left menu and then select "Show Registered Only." To find upcoming K-State fairs, search for "Kansas State". We recommend you click "Follow Career Fair" on fairs you've registered for to receive updates and easily find them in the future. 

How do I request on-campus interview dates?

If you don't see "Request an Interview" on your Handshake homepage for K-State, contact careercenter@k-state.edu or 785-532-6506 to request access to the service. If you do see "Request an Interview" and still need assistance, please review this Handshake help article.

How do I book an info session?

We do not allow employers to book info sessions and events via Handshake. Read more information about how you can connect with K-State students with info sessions.
